Knowing there's a strong sense of community when you move into houses to rent in Bunbury can be reassuring, especially if local issues are going to be dealt with properly.
The City of Bunbury Youth Advisory Council has recently had a new position opened up and youngsters living in the city are encouraged to apply for the role.
It's open to anyone between the ages of 12 and 25 and the individual will be involved in arranging various events, as well as getting involved with the local council on key issues.
"If you are passionate about Bunbury and an innovative thinker or you have an interest in local government then this is the perfect opportunity," said Youth Mayor Sean Smith.
The role is also likely to be positive for anyone who wants to learn more about leadership skills, or perhaps has their eye on a career in politics further down the line.
A successful candidate will be able to get involved in a variety of events that take place throughout Bunbury, including the Youth Arts Festival and Australia Day Youth Zone.
Anyone who's interested in making an application can download the form from the City of Bunbury's website, or pick up a hard copy at its administration building.
