Rochester Youth Action Group members Kelsey Hargood, Grace Ingram, Emily Major, Annette Waters, Tekyra Shead and (standing) Campaspe Shire’s youth development project officer Kayse Williamson and Freeza co-ordinator Jacqui Davies.

The Rochester Youth Group has been busy preparing for its first event which is an open mic night next month.

Grade six Rochester Primary School student Annette Waters made the flyer. She is a self-taught graphic designer who began using a computer design program last year.

Other students had tasks such as making up and printing the registration forms, distributing flyers, speaking to district business owners.

The youth group is seeking six volunteer adult mentors who will be put through the appropriate training.

Campaspe Shire’s youth development project officer Kayse Williamson said the aim of finding mentors was to enhance the sustainability of the group.

She said the initiative was funded until 2014 and then the mentors would continue to facilitate the meetings with the young people.
