Rockingham Youth Reference Group
The Rockingham Youth Reference Group (RYRG) is a group of young people aged 12 - 24 years who contribute to the success of the RYC by providing input into programming, events and advocacy. They act as a reference group on behalf of young people in Rockingham, contributing to the RYC and across the City of Rockingham.
Members have the opportunity to develop their advocacy skills, meet likeminded young people, gain an understanding of how local government operates, and develop event and project planning skills.
