Congratulations to RYA awarded Young Citizen of the Year

Recently we were very excited to hear that one of our rural youth ambassadors for 2023 was announced as the Central Goldfields Young Citizen of the Year.

Khoa Do is an enthusiastic, impressive young person with a strong social conscience, admirable leadership skills and is a role model to his peers at Maryborough Education Centre and the RYA program.

Khoa is a Central Goldfields Shire Youth Councillor and in 2023 held the position of Youth Mayor. In this role Khoa was involved in organising events including Clean-Up Australia Day, the Youth Festival, and was invited to advocate to Department of Education on school-based challenges as a result of the pandemic.

Notably, he played a key role in organising student-led climate conversations alongside members of the Climate Action Stewarding Group. Khoa was an integral part of our 2023 Ambassadors group and excelled in all aspects of the program. He was also a significant contributor to last years energy Breakthrough.

We take this opportunity to congratulate Khoa and wish him every success for his future.
