2023 Hilltops Youth Forum: Empowering Youth Voices for a Brighter Future

The Hilltops Youth Action Group (HYAG), in collaboration with Hilltops Council and the NSW Government, invites the youth of Hilltops to the upcoming 2023 Hilltops Youth Forum. 

The Hilltops Youth Forum is a platform designed to empower the youth in our community to make their voices heard and advocate for positive change in their lives. If you are a young person between the ages of 12 to 24, this is your opportunity to have a say on the issues that matter most to you, and to address the challenges that affect young people living within the Hilltops region. 

Taking place at the Young PCYC on Friday, September 15, 2023, from 9 AM to 2:30 PM, the forum will be filled with engaging activities, discussions, and opportunities to connect with local youth services. Admission will be entirely free, and lunch as well as morning tea will be provided courtesy of Boys to the Bush.
