Kinetic: City of Armadale on the hunt for outstanding young leaders

ARMADALE is on the hunt for its outstanding young leaders, creatives and game-changers.

The City of Armadale’s new Kinetic program will consist of a group of young people aged 12 to 18 who are interested in addressing issues affecting them, their friends, their school and community.

Kinetic will help young people create positive change over the course of a year.

Mayor Henry Zelones said the new project is an exciting opportunity for the City to connect with a group of up to 40 diverse locals.

“We are looking for local young people are ready to embrace challenges and channel their passions, ideas and creativity in to great things for youth in the City,” he said.

The group will be presented with opportunities to develop new skills, try new experiences, and be mentored by inspiring leaders from rappers to storytellers and more.

Through a series of workshops, chill sessions and projects, young people will be able to have their say and help create projects for their City.

Kinetic has come about thanks to a $10,000 Youth Engagement Grant from the Department of Communities.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday, October 27.
