“Our youth are important to society and its functioning. They are our next generation of tradespeople, teachers, doctors, farmers and lawyers, so they need our support. The years of youth can be a time of struggle, dealing with family issues or friends, as well as peer pressures. There are schooling pressures and the looming question of ‘What will I do with my life?’,” he continued.
Councillor Hope said people seeking more information for all events should go to LPSC Youth Week Facebook page or contact council on 02 6746 1755
If you ever wonder what is to become of the next generation, remember many are trying to help themselves and their peers develop into compassionate members of society. Celebrate our youth. They give so much back to all of us,” Councillor Hope concluded.
