Youth Research & Initiatives



Mount Barker District Council is committed to ensuring our young people have access to opportunities that support them to thrive and be engaged in the community in meaningful ways. This is the foundation of our Youth Development Program. We approach this commitment based on what young people are passionate about and interested in and use these aspects as a platform on which to build their resilience and capacity as valuable community members.
