Youth Space recognised
Wesley Mission Brisbane’s Youth Space at Eagleby has received "Organisation of the Year" at the annual Eagleby Achievers’ awards ceremony. Youth Space was presented the award for their E-Youth Positive Lifestyle program, an initiative that encourages young people to get involved with sport and exercise.
Funded by the Eat Well Be Active program, the E-Youth Positive Lifestyle program was a great success. Forty-two per cent of the first group signed up to play Junior Rugby League at Beenleigh, and a further 29 per cent accessed Youth Space and its Active Sports Afternoons workshops.
"One of the young people enrolled in E-Youth Positive Lifestyles from Eagleby South State School was awarded a scholarship to State High for his rugby achievements - a talent that was directly nurtured by the E-Youth Program," says Community Services representative Sally Johansson.
