CORRIMAL High School students were among almost 50 young women from three Wollongong secondary schools to participate in a Young Women’s Forum at Wollongong Youth Centre on Friday.
The Year 10 students from Corrimal High School spoke about perceptions of Wollongong, improving service accessibility, and challenges young women face.
Wollongong City Council’s draft Wollongong 2022 vision was discussed, and the forum also marked the launch of It’s My Future: Youth Survey.
The survey is an integral part of Wollongong council’s Strategy for Engagement with Young People 2012-2013. It will run between March 9 and April 22, and calls upon young people 12-25 years to share their thoughts and hopes for the future.
The It’s My Future: Youth Survey will be available online on the youth services page of Council’s website and on Wollongong Youth Centre’s Facebook page. Plus, everyone aged between 12 to 25 who participates in the survey and lives, works or studies in Wollongong will go in the draw to win* an Apple iPod touch 8GB, or an exclusive MTV VIP Pack.
