Birchip Youth Group

The Birchip Youth Group was  originally established as the Birchip Junior Shire Council but after local council amalgamations it became known as the Birchip Youth Group.

Our mission is to "Promote and support young people in Birchip to be actively involved in their community, so they can have access to opportunities, have fun, achieve their goals and gain new experiences."

We organise youth events, fundraise, provide youth input to local decision making groups and help organise youth entertainment at community events like the community Christmas carnival.

Our major event of the year is our FReeZA event known as RAMPAGE. This year it will be on Saturday 23rd October.

We have a Youth Room at the Shamrock in the Birchip Business and Learning Centre in Cumming Avenue. It has a pool table, table tennis table, lounge suites, plasma tv, playstation 3 and various games. It was funded by the CWA and FRRR.

 

 

Birchip Connect aims to link organisations and people together to encourage communication, foster mutually beneficial relationships and to nurture and celebrate our members successes.

Birchip is home to The Mallee Bull and the saying “As fit as a Mallee Bull” is universally accepted as embodying the characteristics of strength, determination and resilience. 

Birchip is a flourishing community with strong connections locally and globally and we want to use these to “Buck the trend” of declining population in rural communities.

Birchip Connect has established a ‘Giving Program’ to support the Birchip P-12 School and its students and to develop local community projects and infrastructure. The Giving Program allows individuals, groups or businesses to make an annual, weekly or a one-off donation of their choosing.
