Tom Price Youth Sup­port As­so­ci­a­tion and Rio Tinto have signed a three­year part­ner­ship to en­sure con­tin­ued de­liv­ery of youth and com­mu­nity ser­vices.

The part­ner­ship started in 2007 to sup­port the TPYSA’s sus­tain­abil­ity and growth, ac­cess and avail­abil­ity of ser­vices and de­vel­op­ment pro­grams.

TPYSA man­ager Mar­ian Hearne said the part­ner­ship would en­able con­tin­ued ser­vice pro­vi­sion to Tom Price, Parabur­doo, Wakathuni and Bel­lary Springs.

“There have been some amaz­ing out­comes as a re­sult of this part­ner­ship, which have in­creased op­por­tu­nity and en­hanced life for many youth, who use the fa­cil­i­ties at both the Tom Price and Parabur­doo youth cen­tres,” she said. “In 2016, the TPYSA pur­chased its own bus, the Youth Cruiser, which has pro­vided many youth who live out­side of town with trans­port to our cen­tres.”
