Youth services officer Caitlin Muddiman, has only been with the team for a relatively short time, yet was nominated for the award of NSW Emerging Youth Worker of the Year.
Mayor Bob Kirk congratulated the two staff members.
"Our Youth Services team is a small, dedicated one who achieve a lot in our community, delivering workshops, events and programs for the young people in the region," he said.
"Congratulations to Luke and Caitlin for this big achievement, and thank you for the ongoing work you do for young people in our community."
The youth services team is based out of the Community Centre at 155 Auburn Street. A community shared space for young people aged 12 - 25 is available for information access, entertainment, advice, assistance and referral to other programs and services in the Goulburn Mulwaree area.
The team run a number of programs and events including regular school holiday programs, the Paperback Café and Youth Week. They have strong partnerships and work closely with team members from other local youth services including Headspace, Mission Australia and the PCYC where they contribute to the Fit4Life Program.
