Community Connections

Stay tuned for our 2020 Community Connections program..

Well done local youth for Graduating from another successful Community Connections Program. A win for Local Youth and a Local Employers initiative!!

The Youth not only completed a Certificate II in Kitchen Operations, they also obtained RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) competency, Barista training and competed 10 hours per week work experience with a local employer. Some have already been offered paid work with their host employers too!! Well done !!

If you need staff make contact as these youth are ready to go !!

The program was run in partnership between Cabarita Youth Services and Connect Youth Engagement Services – Northern Rivers.

Big thanks also to Tweed Shire Council for awarding CYS a Community Grant to assist running this program and Councillor James Owen for his continued support. After the 12 weeks Course we shared a great graduation night at Cabarita Beach Bowls and Sports Club for the local youth. A chance to celebrate the course and their new skills!

2019 saw us helping to steer 2 more Programs and we see this as such a valuable asset for our community, especially to any Youth who are Disengaged and Unemployed. We will also be partnering with TAFE, moving forwards.

A huge shout out to all of the Employers who jumped on board to provide the Youth a Platform of Work Experience:

We cannot shout out our praise high enough to Chris Hitchcock, our incredible Youth Worker who has incredible commitment to this program and our local youth!!!! Looking forwards to help empower more participants for the years to come.
