Youth can now ACTivate thanks to Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL

Thanks to Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL youth can now ‘ACTivate’.

ACTivate is an early intervention project using art, drama, dance and music to bring together diverse youth (especially at-risk, marginalised, refugee, newly arrived and/or from CALD backgrounds) to address issues affecting them such as anger, bullying and violence.

Through mentoring and workshops, the causes of unacceptable behaviour will be confronted and alternative courses of action explored. The issues raised and the young people’s responses will culminate in the presentation and/or production of artworks and events developed by the participants to be presented to their peers, families and the wider community to advocate and educate how to increase community harmony.
