As Mayor of the City of Ipswich, it gives me great pleasure to provide a reference for Christopher Chambel.  Christopher was a member of the Ipswich Youth Advisory Council in 2009 and 2010.

Over the course of his IYAC membership, Christopher experienced many opportunities and challenges, including participation in formal IYAC meetings, attendance at Council events and functions and engagements with a variety of people from all walks of life.  During his term with IYAC, Christopher was appointed as an Ipswich 150 Ambassador. 

The aim of the IYAC is to give young people the opportunity to have a voice in the Ipswich community, become active citizens, gain skills in project and event management and meeting formalities, and to develop networks with Government and community groups in the region.
