Regional Youth Taskforce applications NOW OPEN

Do you know someone aged 12-24 years old living in regional NSW who’d be interested in joining the NSW Regional Youth Taskforce?

The NSW Government is offering regional young people the opportunity to share their opinion on local issues, to represent their mates and peers, and to help make decisions that will drive change in their own community. Applications are open now and close on Sunday 18 October 2020. The Regional Youth Taskforce connects young people from regional NSW with their community and engages them on issues including getting a job, mental health and public transport.  If you want to help make a difference for young people living and working in regional NSW you are encouraged to apply to become a member of the second NSW Government Regional Youth Taskforce.

Up to eighteen members who reflect the diversity of young people in regional NSW will be selected.  Eligibility

- applications from young people who are:

  • aged 12-24

  • live in regional NSW (defined as Local Government Areas outside of Sydney, Newcastle or Wollongong)

If you have any questions regarding your eligibility to be on the Regional Youth Taskforce, please contact the Office for Regional Youth on 1300 473 688 or As part of answering the questions in the application form, you are invited to share a short video to tell selectors about yourself and some of your experiences. "In the video, tell or show us what you think are the three most important issues impacting young people in your part of regional NSW, and give your pitch about what can be done to address one of these issues."  

The Office for Regional Youth will review all applications and provide a recommended short list to the Minister for Regional Youth, Hon. Bronnie Taylor MLC. Minster Taylor will appoint and announce the final Taskforce members before the end of the year. APPLY HERE:
