A Mosman Park teenager will lead Western Australia’s 2016 National Youth Week celebrations.
Georgie Carey has been named the 2016 National Youth Week Ambassador and will represent the State’s young people during the week of activities and events.
National Youth Week is Australia’s largest annual celebration of young people aged 12 to 25 years. As ambassador, Georgie (19) will take a seat on WA’s National Youth Week planning committee.
The University of Western Australia student is also chairperson of the Mosman Park Youth Advisory Council and has been involved in running local National Youth Week events for five years.
