Fitzroy Valley Youth Hub Comes Alive!!!

The Garnduwa July school holiday program saw the Fitzroy Crossing Youth Hub come alive with a variety of different fun activities and the involvement of many of services all working together to support a positive and engaging program for the young people of Fitzroy Valley.

During the two weeks over holidays Garnduwa Youth Hub ran either jointly or with other services, fifteen different activities in Fitzroy Crossing, sometimes with two or three activities happening a day. Activities included movie nights, basketball, cooking, healthy bbq’s, drop in, art, jewelry making, touch rugby and footy. Fair Game in collaboration with Garnduwa visited nearby communities Bayulu, Muludja and Wangkajangka and up to 200 people enjoyed a highly successful disco and concert night MC’d by Indigenous Hip Hop Projects at the Recreation Centre. 

With a strong focus on collaboration to deliver programs that best support young people in the Valley, the positive relationships built over the school holidays will continue into the future. Garnduwa Youth Hub would like to extend a warm thank you to Nindilingarri Cultural Health Services, Indigenous Hip Hop Projects, Mangkaja Art Centre, Fitzroy Valley Child and Parent Centre, Kimberley Mental Health and Drug Service, Remote School Attendance, Wirrpanda Foundation, Marra Worra Worra Aboriginal Corporation, Fair Game volunteers and the Shire of Derby/ West Kimberley for their involvement, delivery and support of activities.

Thanks again to all the services, young people and community members who got involved and had a great time! Don’t forget that Garnduwa’s Youth Hub will be open for activities throughout the school term. Keep an eye out on our facebook page and notice boards around town for further information.
