SHE will leave behind the legacy of a well-respected name and some big shoes to fill.

She will take with her experience, skills and an attitude second to none.

In exactly two weeks, Warwick's community youth worker Bonita Tyler will be trading her Rose City postcode for one of the white sands and crashing waves of the Gold Coast.

Ms Tyler reflected on a fulfilling time in Warwick and said she would visit.

"I have really enjoyed my time here and working with council," Ms Tyler said.

"It has been a challenge, but I have had such a great time."

She said she had met a number of amazing people while working here, and one of her favourite pastimes had been working with the Young Ambassadors program.

"It is such a good program for young people, and the projects and programs they undertake builds a great profile for young people," she said.

Ms Tyler will take on a similar role on the coast, working with homeless youth in a not-for-profit organisation.

She said she was looking forward to her next chapter.

"It's another step in my career and a chance to challenge myself," Ms Tyler said.

"I just want to thank council and the community for their constant support and I will be back to visit for sure."

The new community youth worker position will be advertised.
