Mr GEPP (Northern Victoria) (15:40:48): I rise today to congratulate 18-year-old Jack Smith from Mildura on his appointment to the 2019 Victorian Youth Congress. Youth from across our state will make an invaluable contribution to youth affairs policy in Victoria, and I am sure Jack will make Northern Victoria Region proud with his particular focus on homelessness and youth mental health. The Victorian youth congress is a flagship project under the Andrews Labor government’s Youth Policy: Building Stronger Youth Engagement in Victoria, and it is vitally important that we value the voices and contributions of our young people. Well done, Jack.
