Youth have the chance to shine and ‘be brave’
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.
