Youth Expo

Council’s Youth Committee supported by Youth Services host an annual Youth Expo. This year it will be held on Friday 23 August 2019 from 3pm to 5:30pm at Henderson Park, Deakin Avenue Mildura. 

The Youth Expo is a multi-agency event that aims to improve young people’s wellbeing by increasing their awareness and use of agencies and services that are available in our region. The Youth Expo will showcase career opportunities, registered training providers, upcoming training courses, sport and recreation activities as well as volunteering opportunities. Everything for young people is free. There is also no cost involved for stall holders. 

Each stall holder will be provided with a space (approx. 3 metres by 3 metres) to promote their organisation’s activities and services to make a difference to a young person’s wellbeing and future career path. This event will also be a great opportunity to network with other organisations. We encourage organisations to be creative with their displays and to provide simple activities to engage young people.  If you would like some ideas on how to make the most of your stall, see below for more details.  All stall holders who are not government funded will be required to provide a public liability certificate of currency.

What stall holders will need to bring? 

  • Well planned and thoughtful activities

  • Sufficient staff:  A number of stall holders have found it useful to work in pairs over a rostered period (This way everyone gets an opportunity to look around and enjoy the day, network and maintain their energy).

  • There will be limited powered sites available.  Please consider using battery power (e.g. for laptops) if possible. If you require power, you will need to provide your own extension cord (need to be discussed with Youth Development Officer)

  • Sticky tape, string, blue tack, extra water and sun block (just in case), business cards to hand out

  • Easy to read details for your service including location

  • Marquee, tables, chairs & display boards

    A site plan will be provided closer to the event, once all stall holders have been confirmed.

    Registration form must be returned by Friday 9 August 2019

    For more information or assistance with the registration, please contact the Youth Development Officer, Barbara Clifford on (03) 5018 8293. Or email youthservices@mildura.vic.gov.au

    Stall holders are now invited to register to participate on the day.
