Rise’s drop-in youth centre Stratton Edge hosted an awesome program of fun these last school holidays.

School holiday program

There was something for everyone happening right throughout the school hols.

We visited some other local youth centres to check out the activities and meet some new people. Altone Youth Centre put on a variety of games and provided a party style lunch of pizza and party pies!

Fair Game ran a sports workshop on our visit to the Dungeon Youth Centre. We had a great game of Boom Ball, played some basketball and tried out all their facilities including the guitars. And of course enjoyed some more pizza!

We also ran a pre-driver workshop called Keys for Life that is all about safer driving. Great to see that 7 out of the 8 participants have now passed the test. Well done!

And then the highlight of the whole program was our brilliant Community Open Day. You can read more about all the fun and activities at the Open Day here.

It’s for 12 to 17 year olds who want to hang out with friends, meet new people, watch movies, listen to music, play pool or sports, or get all arty and crafty.
