Narromine’s Taje Fowler will join seventeen other young people from across regional NSW as a member of the NSW Government’s Regional Youth Taskforce.
Member for the Dubbo Electorate Dugald Saunders congratulated the 23-year-old on her appointment to the Taskforce.
“Taje is a proud Wurundjeri and Wiradjuri woman, passionate about supporting young people with complex needs and addressing youth disengagement with mainstream education,” Mr Saunders said.
“This is great news for the young people of the Dubbo Electorate. Taje will be part of a really important initiative and will work with her peers from across the state to deliver real change and practical benefits for regional young people.”
Minister for Regional Youth Bronnie Taylor said the second-year cohort will build on the achievements of their predecessors.
“The new Taskforce members will have big shoes to fill, but I am really excited by their potential and am eager to hear their views on how the NSW Government can continue to make life better for young people living in the bush,” Ms Taylor said.
The group will meet for the first time later this month to discuss the topic ‘work-readiness’, one of the pillars outlined in the Regional Youth Framework.
