Lake Cargelligo local, Katy MJ Quinn, helped promote Youth Week for the State earlier this month.
Katy had been participating in the NSW Youth Advisory Council (YAC) for young people, which involved taking many flights to Sydney, to help get the town’s western views heard.
During regular meetings, the YAC members provide advice to the Minister responsible for youth, the Hon. Alister Henskens, SC MP and to the Advocate for Children and Young People, Zoë Robinson on issues, policies and laws that affect children and young people in NSW.
Youth Week for 2022 began Monday 4th April and ended Thursday 14th April.
In the lead up to Youth Week, Katy participated in the NSW Youth Week Promo video for 2022. Katy can be seen throughout the video with member Shahim Shabbir as they take turns speaking on the promotion of Youth Week.
