Georges River Youth Advisory Committee member to assist with NSW Youth Week

Posted 26 August 2016 by (Hurstville News)

Georges River Youth Advisory Committee member Tracey Xue has been appointed to the 2017 NSW Youth Week Committee.
Tracey is one of 13 young people from across New South Wales that have been appointed to the Committee to help bring the voice of young people to the management and delivery of Youth Week in 2017.
Georges River Council is very pleased that Tracey has been appointed to the Committee, and we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate her on this achievement.
The Committee is made up of young people from across the state between the ages of 12 and 25, and they will meet regularly to discuss and assist with the organising of Youth Week in NSW for next year.
Council nominated Tracey for the NSW Youth Week Committee, as she has been a proactive and upstanding member of the community.
Tracey was also nominated as a result of the fantastic contributions she has made to the former Hurstville Youth Council over the past 12 months.
Outside studying at university and her work on the Committee, she actively volunteers for organisations such as the Black Dog Institute, and helps out at Beverly Hills North Public School.
Tracey said she is extremely excited to be appointed as a member of the Committee, as it is something she is very passionate about.
“Youth Week is symbolic of young people of all diverse backgrounds and experiences, coming together and seeking to understand what we innately have in common, but also appreciating our individualistic differences,” she said.
“It provides an opportunity for NSW to be unified, and for each young person to be recognised and applauded for their talents, celebrating an often misunderstood subset of the population.
“I hope I can bring that sense of excitement to the Committee, and foster a positive space for ideas.”
