Youth Action Group

Alice Springs Town Council's Youth Action Group is a group of young individuals who meet once a month to discuss youth issues in Alice Springs, and come up with solutions to those issues. The group organises a range of youth-focused events throughout the year. 

The group aims to empower young people by including them in Council decision making, helping them to develop new skills, and also creating a positive perception of young people in Alice Springs.

Meetings are held monthly. Young people under the age of 25 can get involved today by contacting the Youth Services Officer on 8950 0500, or following the Youth Action Group on Facebook or Instagram.
