Young people from the Goulburn electorate are encouraged to apply to be a part of next year's regional youth taskforce.
The ministerial advocacy group will offer a direct line to government to raise local issues faced by friends and classmates.
Goulburn MP Wendy Tuckerman said applications have opened for young people aged between 12 and 24 who want to have a say on the needs of their peers when it comes to services, programs and infrastructure in the region.
Mrs Tuckerman said the taskforce would be made up of 18 members "who will meet regularly with the Minister for Regional Youth and other representatives from NSW Government agencies and cabinet".
"To young people in the region, this is your chance to be heard, to voice your opinion on local issues, represent your mates and peers and help make decisions that drive change in your own community," Mrs Tuckerman said.
"We know each region has different challenges, so we are seeking an even representation of two members from each of the nine NSW regions and we are looking for applications from everybody, not just the best and brightest, but those who can talk with experience."
Travel costs and accommodation will be covered for Regional Youth Taskforce members travelling across NSW for meetings.

Applications are open until 18 October 2020.
