SOMERSET Regional Council has continued its investment into youth development by funding an annual leadership camp.

School leaders from the three secondary schools in Somerset -  Kilcoy, Lowood and Toogoolawah were treated to a two day intensive leadership camp earlier in the year.

Somerset Councillor, Kylee Isidro, attended the camp and said it was wonderful to see so many Somerset youth engaged in local issues.

“This annual camp is organised by Council to support the development of young leaders and gives us an opportunity to consult, and collaborate, with youth on local issues,” Cr Isidro said.

“Council is proactive in this space as we want to build and support youth to feel empowered to raise issues and concerns and give them a voice as they are the future.”

The camp was held at the Gold Coast in April with 21 students attending and participating in a range of activities including paddleboarding, surfing, high ropes and more.

Following the camp, Mayor Graeme Lehmann attended all Somerset secondary schools to congratulate the students and to present them with certificates.

“The feedback and engagement from these future leaders is aspirational and forward thinking,” Cr Lehmann said.

“It is absolutely fantastic to see young people interested in improving their communities and that these leaders should be commended for taking time out of their school holidays to work with Council and develop their leadership skills.”
