Keys for Life Training Session

Keys for Life

We had a very successful Keys for Life Training session on Tuesday, which was held at Headspace in Midland. Lorraine, Nina and Skye from our Youth Team ran the session. They had a 100% Success rate!

What is Keys for Life?

The program is a 5 module workshop where young people, aged 15 – 25 can have the opportunity to sit a test at the end of the day. If they pass they will receive a certificate and can take that into the licencing centre to get their Learners permit!

Skye commented,

It was a great day and think it was run really well, we do make a great team :)))) Thanks Lorraine for your amazing intro and power points. Thanks to Nina for keeping us all entertained :))))

Nina’s said,

Well done Skye on a well organised training session today with a 100% success rate. Both you and Lorraine were fabulous and the kids were really excited about the training in the car when I dropped them off.

It was a great day, all the young people connected really well. We all shared morning tea and a subway lunch. It also provides our young people with the opportunity to learn more about our youth services at Rise.
