Living in Alice

Youth Programs

Pro­grams that sup­port, empow­er and ele­vate the young peo­ple of Alice Springs. 

Alice Springs Town Coun­cil acknowl­edges the diverse skills, inter­ests and needs of young peo­ple who live, work or study in our munic­i­pal­i­ty. We know that young peo­ple enjoy oppor­tu­ni­ties to devel­op their skills, engage with and make pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tions to their com­mu­ni­ty and express them­selves. Our Youth Pro­grams wish to hon­our this in the way we design, plan and imple­ment pro­grams for young peo­ple. We enjoy deliv­er­ing both reg­u­lar annu­al and var­ied taster pro­grams to sup­port young peo­ple’s mixed inter­ests which change, grow and devel­op as they do. Our pro­grams are focused towards young peo­ple aged 12 to 25.

Our reg­u­lar pro­grams include the Phoney Film Fes­ti­val, Youth Recy­cled Art Prize, and Youth Skate Work­shops. What’s on can be seen below.
