Join the Community Accountability Board on youth crime

We’re looking for local business owners and community members to join the Community Accountability Board in Alice Springs.

The Board gives locals a chance to take an active role in helping address youth crime in their area.

The Board will complement ongoing work that is already being undertaken to reduce youth crime.

Expressions of interest are encouraged from local business owners, residents, non-government organisations, local councils and Aboriginal elders.

The boards will build stronger relationships with communities, assist enforcement efforts and improve the design, innovation and management of community based-youth justice programs.

You might be suited to join the Board if you have ideas on:

  • how young offenders can repair the harm they cause, such as picking up litter, cleaning graffiti or mending property damage
  • how young offenders can be given meaningful consequences that discourage reoffending
  • what mentoring and development opportunities young people need to get back on track.

The Board will meet quarterly and provide ideas for improvement to the Minister for Territory Families and Urban Housing.

Further boards are also being established in Darwin and Palmerston.
