Burnie Youth Council

The Burnie Youth Council is a Special Committee of the Burnie City Council and is coordinated by Burnie Works

Being a Youth Councillor provides young people with the opportunity to learn about how Local Government works, develop leadership skills, learn more about their local community and participate in a range of community projects.

Each year four students from each high school and two students from each primary school are nominated by their school to become a youth councillor.

These representatives are then asked to nominate for the positions of Mayor, Senior Deputy Mayor and Junior Deputy Mayor.

27 Youth Councillors were appointed to the Youth Council in March 2022.

Burnie City Council would like to congratulate all nominees and welcome the Youth Mayor and Deputy Youth Mayors (pictured below).
