What does community mean to you?

To me, community is the coming together of people with shared passions, experiences, goals or ideologies, working towards a positive outcome. Communities can be made up of a diverse range of people from all walks of life and everyone is welcome. Actively involving yourself in communities around you can bring a beautiful richness to your life. The people you meet and experiences you gain will shape you in ways you could never imagine and is something I would recommend to anyone.

I like to volunteer at Living Streets because…

I love seeing the positive impact it has on the people who get involved. Seeing the children learn and enjoy themselves through activities we have prepared and even the growing confidence and responsibility of the other volunteers. I feel valued for my contributions and am always encouraged to do my best. Living Streets is a wonderful organisation that has contributed to a truly beautiful and unique community.

Hi I’m Jazmyn! I live in NSW, just a short 30-minute drive out of Watson. Going to school in the local area, I formed close friendships with people in the Watson area. This, combined with my passion for the environment and community, led me to join living streets in 2017. This year I am starting my first year at ANU studying Environment and Sustainability. I love getting involved in community events, volunteering and learning from different people. From 2018 to 2021 I was a member of the Youth Advisory Council, who advise the Minister on youth issues, giving young people a voice in the ACT Government. During my time I was actively involved in community and government consultations, submitted public submissions, attended various government and community forums and participated on assessment panels for grants and scholarship programs across ACT Government.
