Council’s youth services are provided within the Shire’s built infrastructure and facilities as a way to provide youth have designated places where they can spend time or engage in activities. This ethos has been reflected in the design and function of the Library,  Leisure Centre, Aquatics Complex, Bridgetown Youth Precinct and the Greenbushes Youth Precinct which have youth specific zones in each of these facilities. Our Youth Plan provides a roadmap to guide Council and staff to work  collaboratively with other youth service providers, schools, community organisations and most importantly, our young people, to ensure we make the Shire is a great place for young people to live.
