Business Awareness Lunch: Street Connect
Time & Location
About the Event
Street Connect is a program that aims to make connections with marginalised young people between the age of 15-25 years old who gather regularly in public places and engage them in positive life changes. The service is provided by a team of Youth Workers who provide daily outreach via the Mobile Youth Resource Centre (the Street Connect Outreach Bus).
Our Youth Workers meet with young people on the streets, forming positive working relationships and providing informal counselling, referral to other helpful services, advocacy, crisis intervention and follow-up support. They also assist young people to understand their legal rights and responsibilities in relation to their use of public space. The outreach bus is stocked with information on services and referral resources, and also provides food and useful items including:
• freshly made sandwiches
• pregnancy tests
• first aid kits
• hygiene packs
• sleeping bags
• access to mobile phones/IT
Our guest speaker will be Kate Agnew the Street Connect Coordinator.
We are delighted to support Street Connect in February. Your food is included in this price and 50% of the ticket proceeds after costs to the beneficiary for the month.
Come to listen, learn and be inspired. As professional we could all learn and help more.
