New pro­gram for youth on Fri­day nights

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

YOUTH Space in Proser­pine have an­nounced that with hard work and sup­port from lo­cal com­mu­nity groups and busi­nesses, they will be able to start a Fri­day evening pro­gram in Jan­uary 2014.

This will be of great ben­e­fit to lo­cal young peo­ple, of­fer­ing an­other lo­cal evening ac­tiv­ity in an oth­er­wise quiet town for youth.

Proser­pine Youth Space co-or­di­na­tor Rachel Ged­des said they aimed to of­fer ac­tiv­i­ties on Fri­day evenings, en­sur­ing max­i­mum op­tions for young peo­ple through­out each month.

“Fur­ther sup­port and spon­sor­ship is still re­quired to en­sure con­tin­u­a­tion of the pro­gram through­out the year,” she said.

“If you know of a lo­cal com­pany, busi­ness or group who may be able to of­fer a ser­vice, vol­un­teers or fi­nan­cial spon­sor­ship please let us know as we would love to see this pro­gram re­ally take off dur­ing 2014.”

Cur­rent youth mem­bers have al­ready ex­pressed enor­mous in­ter­est in the idea.

Youth Space has al­ready re­ceived some great sup­port from the Li­ons Club of Proser­pine, Bendigo Com­mu­nity Bank in Can­non­vale and Proser­pine and Hog’s Breath Cafe.

“We look for­ward to hear­ing your sug­ges­tions,” Ms Ged­des said.

“Also, if you would like to see Youth Space hold a spe­cific type of ac­tiv­ity or event, feel free to let us know.”
