The City launched its youth engagement study YSpeak! this month for eight to 25-year-olds who live, work, study or simply ‘hang out’ in its boundaries.

A spokeswoman said they wanted to hear from young people about a range of current youth issues, existing youth activities and possible future programs and facilities.

Merriwa’s Elizabeth Harvey (13) said she used the Clarkson Youth Centre every week and thought there should be more games for young people. The survey, which can be completed online or on paper, will run until May 31 and includes prizes.
