Young people in the City of Gosnells will benefit from a donation from the Young Change Makers – the City’s Youth Advisory Council.

Young Change Makers raised $500 by selling handmade merchandise, including brightly-coloured tie dye socks and tote bags, at local community events.

The funds will be presented to The Smith Family to support programs for young people aged 6–17 years old in the Gosnells area.

Mayor David Goode said Young Change Makers should be commended for their efforts.

“This was a great result and I hope this activity inspires the Young Change Makers to continue making positive changes in their community and leading by example for many years to come,” he said.

“The Young Change Makers chose to donate the money to these programs because they felt strongly about helping other young people to receive a better education.”

Young Change Makers members attend weekly meetings and workshops during school terms, where they plan activities for other young people to encourage participation, inclusion and a positive representation of youth.
