Recognising participation and service

Named after the late dedicated community leader and activist, Betty Makin, these awards recognise the importance of participation and service in Sydney’s local communities.

The annual awards encourage young people aged 12 to 25, and those who work with young people, to play an important role in building stronger and healthier communities.

In 2019 the awards included 4 categories for creativity, community mindedness, youth worker of the year and a group award for outstanding partnership. 

Nominations will open in early 2020 for the next Betty Makin Youth Awards.
