Young creative people are invited to become a member of the Young Makers Market Committee and help to organise and promote these quarterly events.

Wednesday 19 February 2020

If you’re a creative young person who would like to get involved in the Young Makers Market, sign up now to become a committee member.

Young Makers Markets are held four times each year and give young people aged 12 to 25 years the chance to host a free market stall to promote and sell their homemade art, crafts, horticulture, food and more.

As a committee member you’ll gain the opportunity to develop skills in event management, budgeting, marketing and promotion, communication, meeting facilitation and venue booking.

“Event management is an incredibly valuable life skill, whether you’re running a market, throwing a party, or planning a wedding,” said Young Makers Market Committee Member Jade Bujeya.

“It’s an amazing group of young people, and it’s incredible watching the new members find their feet and develop their confidence and skills,” said Ms Bujeya.

Afternoon meetings are held in the weeks leading up to each market.

Committee application forms and the Terms of Reference are available on Council’s youth website at www.mountalexandershireyouth.com.au.

If you’d like to find out more about the committee you can get in touch with Council’s Youth Development Unit on 5471 1700 or email www.mountalexandershireyouth.com.au.

To stay up to date on the markets and other local activities for young people follow the team on Facebook @MountAlexanderShireYouth or on Instagram @mountalexandershire_youth.

The Young Makers Market is an initiative of Council and is funded by the Victorian Government’s Engage! program.
