Youth Development

We offer some really great programs for young people - from DJ workshops at Northern Sound System, to mentoring programs that help you get your licence. Most are totally free and work around your school and study commitments. Below is just a taster of some programs, but for a full list you can download our brochure PDF which has all the details of our programs, and who to contact if you want to get involved.

Youth Advisory Committee: A group of local young people that share views and develop solutions to issues affecting young people's lives in the Playford community.

Playford E-Sports League: The E-Sports Leagee provides young people with the opportunity to showcase their gaming talent on a professional stage. If you want to compete for prizes, prestige and bragging rights, check out the above pdf for further information.

N1 Records: This is a professional development program for emerging musicians aiming to get to the next level in the music industry. N1 Artists execute a project of their choice with the support of ArtsSA funding and NSS facilities and staff.

What have young people planned for Playford?

Youth Plan 2011-2016

Young people play a significant part in our community - they are students, workers, volunteers, carers and peers. Our Youth Plan was created by young people, for young people. It focuses on the vision ‘Young people have the power to make what they want happen’ and outlines Council’s commitment to working in partnership with young people, youth services, schools and other key stakeholders.
