Are you a young person in the Wimmera who wants to be a part of something bigger, but not sure where to start?

We’re developing a 2-day Youth Empowerment Workshop that aims to engage with and inspire you to feel stronger and more confident in your own abilities to control your life and contribute to the world around you.  The workshop activities will help you gain insight about who you are as a person and as a leader, what you have to offer the world and lead a happier life.

The 2-day workshop will be held in the January 2021 school holidays (exact date TBC) and is open to young people aged 13 – 21 years.

We’d love to have an idea of interested numbers as soon as possible.  Please contact Justin Knorpp Youth and Library Impact Officer on 0429941083 or if you’d like to participate.
