Early in 2017 nominations were sought from VFRS members under the age of 30 to form a new Youth Committee to represent youth members to the VFRS. The aim of the Youth Committee is to improve communications between the youth members of the VFRS and the more experienced members, to ensure that the voice of youth members is considered when decisions are made that will affect VFRS members.
The Youth Committee has a member appointed from each zone on the committee, and committee members are:
Acting Chairperson: Jodie Breese (Toodyay)
Committee: Glen Auzins (Jurien Bay)
Scott Britza (Harvey)
Nathan Cook (Wagin)
TK Kippin (Coolgardie)
Callum O’Connell (Tom Price)
Kierin Schoof (Armadale)
Brett Turnbull (Northam)
Executive Member Tony Dodd provides oversight.
The committee has been funded generously by ARC infrastructure, who provided an initial grant to establish the committee. We are currently using their money to carry out our projects, including the scholarship program.
