Maroondah Youth Consultation Report & Maroondah Youth Profile

In 2011, Maroondah Youth Services recruited a group of seven young people from the Maroondah Young Leaders Program to the Peer Engagement Program (PEP). 

PEP participants and Maroondah Youth Services worked in partnership between May and November 2011 to design and deliver the largest youth consultation Maroondah City Council has ever undertaken.

Over 800 people took part in the consultation, including over 700 young people aged 12-25 who live, work, study or hang out in Maroondah.

We asked people about:

  • The most important issues for young people,
  • What is good about Maroondah for young people, and
  • Suggestions for how to improve things in Maroondah for young people

The results are outlined in the Maroondah Youth Consultation Report 2011, which can be found in the 'Downloads' section below.
