Council provides a range of recreational, vocational and support programs to young people (12–24 years) and their families.

Our role in the provision of Youth Services includes direct service delivery, service planning and coordination, resourcing and support, provision of community facilities and youth sector development. The service aims to address the social, welfare, recreational and vocational needs of youth, to make Ku-ring-gai a place where all young people belong and thrive!
