Wagga Wagga City Council is committed to hearing the voice of young people across our local government area.
In addition to holding two youth forums a year, we run a number of programs and events through our facilities including the Oasis Regional Aquatic Centre, Wagga Wagga City Library, Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and the Museum of the Riverina.
We employ a full time Youth Development Officer and work closely with other government agencies and youth service providers to strive to improve the quality of life for young people.
