Life Matters Blacktown - Gerringong

Saturday, August 30, 2014


Life Matters Workshop was held in Gerringong, 15-17 August 2014.  Hosted by IofC and supported by partner organisations - SydWest Multicultural Services Inc. and the Blacktown Local Area Command of the NSW Police - the event drew together 14 young people from indigenous and multicultural backgrounds mainly from Blacktown, along with three representatives of the Rotaract Club of Macquarie University, including its current President.  The team of 12 facilitators from Sydney and Melbourne was further strengthened by the presence and participation of three of Blacktown's youth workers who had helped with the selection of candidates.  A full report will be published in the next Newsbriefs.
