MITCHELL SHIRE Positive Ambassadors Program
Mitchell Shire Council are seeking interest in six older people from our townships to become Positive Ageing Ambassadors, who will act as local leaders in their towns and maxamise the involvement of older people in generating local projects.
Trained by skills professionals in a number of workshops, the Ambassadors will be experienced to talk with neighbours and the wider community on how best to develop a range of projects to benefit older people.
Ambassadors will each be allocated an iPad for the use throughout their project, as well as an allocation of $10,000 to develop their local project in partnership with their community.
The Ambassador Porgram has three stages between February 2017 and May 2018.
Expression of Interest forms are available at all of our Customer and Library Service Centres, or you can download a copy online via the below link:
The due date for Expression of Interest has now been extended until Saturday 31 December 2016.
