As our young people develop into adults we hope that their life will be free from issues with drugs and alcohol, difficulties at home and troubles at school.
Youth Up Front is a local driven initiative of the Burdekin Association, MDECC and the Business Education Network aimed at raising the awareness of local services supporting the needs of young people in the adolescence to adulthood stage – whatever they may be!
The three female CEO’s are promoting the importance of putting Youth Up Front by working with young people need to know which service to go to for support and to assist them in achievement their goals in life.
Without these specialised youth focused services many young people on the northern beaches would fall between the cracks. It is paramount that these services are adequately funded to assist young people and their families through a very vulnerable time their life.
This year marks the inaugural Youth Up Front Gala Dinner which these three CEO’s aim to raise the profile of their own services and fundraise to extend their services. Youth Up Front will also highlight the importance of youth services being provided across the beaches.
