Engaging with Children, Youth and Young Adults

Children, youth and young adults are directly impacted by the decisions we make now and should be considered in all forms of community engagement.

Logan City Council, in partnership with Logan Together and The Salvation Army Communities for Children Facilitating Partner, developed Listen 2 Connect, a guideline to enable meaningful engagement with children, youth and young adults (birth to 25 years) in the City of Logan. This guideline aims to provide project officers and decision makers with the tools and knowledge necessary for meaningful community engagement with children, youth and young adults in the City of Logan.

Hear from Erin Searle, Senior Community and Stakeholder Engagement Advisor at Logan City Council, on how Logan City Council approached the development of Listen 2 Connect and its use within Council and community.
