Lithgow City Council is pleased to announce the upcoming “Lithgow Youth Summit” to be held at Maldhan Ngurr Ngurra Lithgow Transformation Hub on Tuesday 26 March 2024.

The Youth Summit will serve as a networking platform for a wide range of youth leaders, youth stakeholders, peak bodies, and advocates in Lithgow. Its overarching goal is to not only highlight the “Planet Youth Lithgow – Report” and all the great initiatives led by the Planet Youth local services consortium, but also to identify innovative ideas and collaborative approaches moving forward.

Planet Youth Lithgow is a consortium of organisations working with Lithgow youth and their communities to strengthen protective factors, mitigate risk factors, and to build a healthy community environment, for the positive development of young people.

The summit will showcase the positive impact of the Planet Youth consortium efforts to date, while fostering an environment that encourages the exploration of fresh ideas and strategies for the future.

The Summit findings will inform a community action plan and will provide Council/ schools/ stakeholders with meaningful data to be used in the development of programs and support systems for young people.

After the Summit, a Lithgow Youth Interagency will be created to provide ongoing networking opportunities and for planning coordinated social interventions and funding applications to support the work of Planet Youth.

This event is FREE and open to young leaders who want to have a say in their community, youth services and others, who would like to understand youth issues in Lithgow.  The event is proudly Supported by The Office for the Regional Youth, Lithgow City Council and Planet Youth.
