​​​We put youth at the heart of our planning because they will be the future of Canterbury Bankstown. We aim to ensure that the programs and policies that we devise for young people in our City reflect their needs as identified by the young people themselves. Our Youth Programs are fully inclusive of all young people, aged between 12 and 24 years.

We welcome:

  • Young people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds (CALD);
  • Young people living with a disability;
  • Young people that are newly arrived;
  • Young people from refugee backgrounds;
  • Young People that are at risk of homelessness; and 
  • Young people that identify with being Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Intersexed (LGBTQI+).
