Pos­i­tive mes­sage for youth

Joondalup Times - - STREET WATCH -

CHIL­DREN in the north­ern sub­urbs are com­ing to­gether each fort­night for fun, games and mu­sic.

The Kapow youth group is a joint ini­tia­tive by Youth Jam Ra­dio’s Isaac Mul­crone and Forte School of Mu­sic’s Nun­zio Guinta for chil­dren in years 5 to 10.

Isaac said they wanted to “bring a pos­i­tive group to Perth”.

“We believe our pos­i­tive mes­sage will help youth when they are lost, up­set, an­gry or just need some­where to go,” the Clark­son 16-year-old said.

“The group was set up to al­low youth to come to a place where they won’t be judged, where they can have fun, play some games, learn about ra­dio, lis­ten to mu­sic, play in­stru­ments and just chat with other youth.

“We have al­ready seen some friend­ships made through the group.”

Kapow runs at Forte School of Mu­sic in Joon­dalup ev­ery se­cond Fri­day from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, with the next ses­sion on June 29.

En­try is $2 with free hot choco­late, plus a can­teen where all prod­ucts are also $2. Visit www. face­book.com/Kapow-Youth.
