Connecting Youth to Programs, Events and Community

The Station is a great place for youth aged from 12 to 25 to get involved in positive fun stuff while meeting other young people from around the Murray Bridge area.

Youth Action Committee
The Rural City of Murray Bridge aims to recognize and promote young leaders in our local community through our Youth Action Committee.

As a Council YAC member you will have access to opportunities, resources and support to enable you to become a leader in your local community.

YAC will help you develop the skills that will assist you in making a positive difference in your community including: 

  • Influencing decisions that affect young people
  • Goal setting
  • Working in teams
  • Problem solving
  • Public speaking
  • Event organization and management

Meetings are held one evening per month supported by an elected member of the Council and the council’s Youth Development Officer. Food and drink are provided.

The YAC is made up of a diverse range of 12-25 year olds that live, work or study in the Rural City of Murray Bridge.

Successful applicants demonstrate: 

  • Interest in youth issues
  • Desire to be involved in community events
  • Ability and commitment to attend the monthly meetings

YAC members advocate on behalf of young people in our community on issues which affect them.

Band Connections

This program is run by Music SA with support from a group of dedicated young local musicians.

Live at The Station
