Who are Valley Youth?
Moonee Valley boasts some of the best cafes, green spaces, sporting clubs and arts venues in metropolitan Melbourne, so it’s no wonder its popularity among young people is growing. The work of Valley Youth is guided by a number of plans in order to achieve the community’s vision for Moonee Valley in the future.
One of the most important documents is the Moonee Valley Council Plan, which outlines the path to achieve a city of clean, green and beautiful, vibrant, diverse and sustainable communities that people experience as friendly and safe to live in. The Council Plan identifies how we will respond to various challenges, and also the opportunities we will seize to make the vision a reality.
