Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

SUBI Voice of Youth (SVY) cel­e­brates its 18th an­niver­sary this year.

Pres­i­dent James Dracup (23) said SVY pro­vided a strong voice for the fu­ture of Su­bi­aco’s com­mu­nity and youth per­spec­tives on strate­gic plan­ning.

“Our an­nual quiz night is just around the cor­ner and it’s al­ways a lot of fun,” Mr Dracup said.

“There’s free pizza and some awe­some prizes up for grabs, with teams of five to eight com­pet­ing for their chance to win in six rounds of trivia fun.”

SVY hosts free events for ages 12-18 through­out the year, in­clud­ing Race around Subi and Up­skill Aus­tralia youth de­vel­op­ment work­shops.

Mr Dracup said be­ing a part of SVY was more than just volunteering.

“As well as the warm and fuzzy feel­ing you get giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity, SVY also of­fers young peo­ple de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties through projects that equip them with skills for ev­ery­day life,” he said.
