Lord Mayors Youth Advisory Council

Brizband School Challenge is an initiative of the Brisbane City Council, in consultation with the Lord Mayors Youth Advisory Council. Consisting of representatives from Brisbane’s secondary schools, the Advisory Council plays an important role in advising Lord Mayor Campbell Newman about issues that were important to young people, as well as provide younger residents with an opportunity to learn about the role of local government and community leadership.

Brisbane secondary schools and colleges are invited to nominate one full time school representative, who was a resident of the City of Brisbane and aged between 15 and 18 years, to become a member of the Lord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council.

The advisory council engages young leaders in helping make decisions about council policies, local laws, council services and programs that affect young people. It provides a chance for our future leaders to be involved in the planning process.
