The Capel Youth Collective will aim to bring young people in the community together to create a sense of belonging and inclusion through a range of experiences. The Collective hopes to build on its programs and gain community support to take on larger projects through establishing a core group of young people. The Collective will empower young people and give them a voice, so they can make a difference in their community and contribute to the growth of the region.
The Collective wants young people who feel they can inspire others and become a champion in their community to make a positive impact in the Shire.

In Term Program
In Term 3 2017 the Capel Youth Collective started its first Drama Club. The group meets every Monday from 3.30pm-5.00pm in the Capel Community Centre. The workshops are about building basic acting skills through improvisation, characterisation and scene work. The Drama Club is all about having fun and being involved in something new, while meeting likeminded young people and forming new friendships. The workshop is open to 10-15 year olds.
Capel Youth Team Building Camp
The youth team is excited to be hosting its first camp in the January 2018 school holidays. The two day, one night camp to Perth will offer a raft of team building and fun activities. Youth going into Year 7 in 2018 or those already in high school are eligible to attend. It is a great way to spring back into the New Year and make some new friends. Registrations are open until December 1.
The Inzone School Holiday Program holds a special place in many young people’s hearts as it has been running for a number of years. The program still runs every school holidays and continues to be a popular activity for the youth. Ahead of each school holidays the Shire’s Community Development team come up with fresh ideas to deliver a jam packed school holiday program, including trips to Perth and the lower South West. Check out the Capel Youth Collective Facebook page for regular updates.
This year the Collective has hosted a number of excursions including trips to Margaret River, Yallingup, Forest Adventures South West and Gravity ETC. The Capel Skate Park also underwent a revamp with a group of young people coming up with their own theme to repaint the skate park. Two local artists held a week long intensive to teach the kids aerosol painting skills and then painted the park on a weekend.
