The NSW Government-sponsored Youth Frontiers Program held in the Ballina Electorate will hold its final showcase on Monday November 9 at Ballina RSL commencing at 4.00pm.
This event is an opportunity for the young adults that were participating in the program to showcase their community projects and share their stories and experiences they have had on their mentoring journey. As the Ballina community has supported this opportunity it would be a wonderful gesture to attend the showcase and show your support and interest in what they have achieved, for some it has been quite a challenging and fulfilling journey one that has been tough sometimes, they all made it through and they are all very proud and would like to be acknowledged by their community. There were 16 students from years 8 & 9 from Ballina High School and 13 volunteer adults in the program.
Also it’s a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in being a mentor on the program next year they can see what the results can be and talk to those who were involved in this year’s program.
Ballina MP Tamara Smith will be in attendance as well as many councillors and local business people. Please feel free to pass onto anyone you may feel would benefit from attending or be interested in the program. We really want a big crowd there to celebrate with the children.
