and events where you can meet other like minded young people.
This a group of dedicated young people aged 12-25 years old who organise events for their peers in Geelong and surrounding areas including along the Waterfront and the Youth Activities Area.
GYEG runs activities to help increase youth participation, build positive relationships with regular users of various spaces, and participate in activities along the Waterfront, Central Geelong and surrounding areas for young people.
Young people are volunteers and meet to plan, and organise all aspects of the event. They do all tasks from booking and promotions, stage management to risk management and other tasks that are needed to run events.
On the event day, group members are there from bump in to bump out, running everything.
GYEG aims to provide opportunities for young people to improve their skills, organise events, make a difference, create change and help others. In doing this GYEG improves the image of young people and increases social connection between young people and adults.
