Youth Politics Camp 2017

In April 2017, 25 young people aged between 15-25 years old from all over North East Victoria, had the opportunity to participate in Indi's annual Youth Politics Camp in Beechworth. 

These young leaders spent 3 days learning from people such as Indi MP Cathy McGowan, Euroa MLA Steph Ryan, and young councillors Kat Bennett, Dave Fuller and Sophie Price.

The aim of the camp is to empower young people to get involved in their communities.  The message being, you are never to young to make a difference.
