In 2017 Impact100 SA provided a major grant to Youth Opportunities, to support its highly acclaimed Personal Leadership programs, targeted at young people considered at risk. The grant was specifically used as seed funding to establish a program in the Mt Gambier region.
Youth Opportunities continues to support young people across South Australia and last year the achievements of 185 students who participated in 10 programs across 10 schools were celebrated at graduation ceremonies across the State. Our Chairperson Kathryn House was honoured to attend a moving graduation ceremony held at Christies Beach High School.
Kathryn said there was not a dry eye in the audience after listening to testimonials from the participants. Well done to all the participants, their trainers and Youth Opportunities for their great work in our community.
