If you know a young person, aged 15 to 24, who is ready for an engaging leadership role why not nominate them now.

The Hills Shire Council is searching for young and emerging leaders to join its Youth Ambassador program for 2020.

“Our Ambassadors participate in a range of activities that help them build upon their leadership skills and it’s also a great opportunity to learn more about the world of local government. Our Ambassadors are also encouraged to support Council during major events and are often asked to provide feedback on programs aimed towards young people.
