This program provides local governments and community organisations with the opportunity to develop projects with young people, for young people. Connecting to your community, engaging in school and learning practical skills are the focus of this program.

By participating in Engage! events, you can get involved in local decision making and community initiatives; increase your leadership abilities, and strengthen connections with your family, friends or community.

Through Engage!, we work with schools, local government, youth service providers and community groups to run youth events and activities that put young people at the centre.  

Some examples of Engage! in action include: CGLLEN Skate Park Day (winner of Northern Grampians Community Event of Year Award), Funky FridaysSing It Out Grampians tourMuso Dayschool holiday programs and more.  

These events involve hosting workshops on youth issues, self-esteem, youth participation and leadership; working with young people to plan and run events that celebrate youth culture; promoting volunteering through expos and hands-on activities, and running workshops to develop new skills.
