DARWIN Brothers are taking the next step in their Youth Wellbeing program by holding a camp for their junior female members at the weekend. It follows previous initiative­s taken by the club to promote youth wellbeing and developmen­t, such as the recent Youth Wellbeing Camp for their male members and a road safety awareness campaign.

Kim Mulholland of IvolveGen delivered the previous camp, focusing on different facets of mental health and social and emotional wellbeing and will be returning for the women’s camp.

Club president John Adams said it was important for the club to offer the program to their juniors as their way of reaching out and engaging with their younger members.

“We’ve had a fair bit of interest from our junior women and this just adds to what we’ve done previously this year,” Adams said.

“This is a great positive program from our club – we’re one of the first to offer this kind of program for our members and it’s all about reaching out and giving them a head start.

“So we want to give our young people a kick start and a push in the right direction.”

That’s not all the Brothers have in store in the coming weeks, with the newly-formed Alice Springs Brothers also set to play the Darwin A-grade side on October 2.

The Alice Springs side is only in its first year as a club, but after an undefeated season it is sure to give its Darwin equivalent – the 2020 Darwin premiers – a run for its money when they meet.
