The Bathurst Regional Youth Council empowers young people to represent the voice of youth in the Bathurst region and to develop their skills to build engaged citizens and progressive leadership. The Bathurst Regional Youth Council strives to promote a positive community environment.

The Bathurst Regional Youth Council’s role is to represent the voice of young people who live, work and study in the Bathurst Local Government Area.

The Bathurst Regional Youth Council aims to represent the voices and opinions of all young people in the region and so we encourage young people from all backgrounds to apply. This opportunity is inclusive of people with lived experience of disability.
