The Hepburn Shire Council provides a range of services for young people aged 12-24. 

In 2015, after much consultation with our youth,  we developed the Youth Strategy 2016-2021 .  One of the key items from the strategy was communication so we created a digital community on Instagram called Hepburn Teen Squad (@hepburn_teensquad).  

The Teen Squad offers opportunities for young people to get involved in their community through a variety of fun and significant ways:Hepburn Teen Squad Logo

Quick Response Youth Grants are open


The  Grants are designed to be accessible to young people, youth focused clubs and not-for-profit organisations. The aim of these grants is to provide opportunities for young people, who are aged 12-25, to lead and organise a project in the Hepburn Shire Council Municipality.
