Youth have the chance to shine and ‘be brave’

Whitsunday Times - - LIFE COMMUNITY -

YOUNG peo­ple may re­alise they are ca­pa­ble of more than they imag­ined af­ter walk­ing out of the ‘Bold Day Out’ event to be held at the Proser­pine State High School Hall.

Peo­ple tak­ing part in the Na­tional Youth Week event will learn to “be brave” and get out of their com­fort zone with a se­ries of four ex­cit­ing work­shops led by pas­sion­ate fa­cil­i­ta­tors.

Yoga ther­a­pies fa­cil­i­ta­tor Meaghan Collins will co-or­di­nate the yoga and mind­ful­ness work­shop, Mackay ac­tor and di­rec­tor Jes­sica New­man will take on the act­ing and stage con­fi­dence work­shop, lo­cal au­thor and PSHS vet­eran Rob Ni­cholls will lead writ­ing work­shops and Whit­sun­day Mar­tial Arts gu­rus An­ton Zafir and Dan Zealand will teach box­ing and sub­mis­sive wrestling.

PCYC youth worker Cassie Holeczy said she ex­pected to see ev­ery­one’s re­silience shine through by the end of the day.

“You have to par­tic­i­pate in all of them, so it will push youth out of their com­fort zone and get them test­ing them­selves,” she said.

While act­ing and stage con­fi­dence would be con­fronting to many youth, Ms Holeczy said ev­ery­one would be in good hands.

“The fa­cil­i­ta­tor (for act­ing and stage con­fi­dence) is beau­ti­ful; Jes­sica is a bud­ding young ac­tress her­self and is very friendly and peo­ple won’t feel pushed into any­thing,” she said.

All kids of high school age are wel­come.
