The past 3 years, they have decided to put their resources and focus on dealing with the issue of youth homelessness. In 2019 they volunteered at John Paul’s Community Companion Food Van and advocated on behalf of Youth2 Campaign at a Council meeting. And to top it all off, they have also been hard at work sourcing toiletries, snacks and drinks for this year’s batch of Kindness Kits. They have also produced 75 Kindness Kits that have been donated to Community Support Frankston, Whitelion and Lifegate. These organisations were chosen by Frankston Youth Council because they work directly with people in need in the Frankston area.
In 2014 to 2017, the Youth Council organised the Annual ‘Frankston 'Stand for Change', an anti-bullying event that has reached thousands of young people.
