Community Development Projects

St George Youth Services also runs community development projects (to build the community’s strength) based on local needs and issues.  Current projects are:

 

  • 'Youth Respecting Cultural Connections' where young people themselves will provide community harmony and anti-racism training to their peers in schools.  A video infomercial will also be coming up.  Contact us if you would like to become a youth leader for this project on communityprojects@stgeorgeyouth.org
  • St George Youth Leaders committee: is a passionate group of young people who advise the service and take action on local issues that affect them (see flyer at the bottom of this page)           Click here for the Youth Leaders Committee flyer
  • 'Driver Distraction': young people have been trained as peer educators and go into about 30 different schools across St George and Sutherland as part of the U-turn the Wheel project for young driver safety, to educate their peers to minimise distractions while driving
  • Schools Youth Worker: a qualified worker is based in schools to support students for their welfare needs
  • Advocacy projectswhere the Service represents local issues/needs to government, media and the wider community.  One example is establishing and involvement in the NSW Multicultural Youth Affairs Network (MYAN) 
  • Youth and Community Events- we coordinate events like Arncliffe Youth Festival and Ice/Other Drugs Community Forum- these depend on current needs. Such events provide young people with a chance to organise their own events, learn new skills and discuss local issues.

Some of the past projects have included: 

  • St George/Sutherland Anti-Racism Project – where Youth Leaders were trained to provide a rangeof community harmony campaigns and education within the community, including through a 'Flashmob, Magazine, social marketing resources and workshops.
  • St George Responsible Drinking Campaign- an educational strategy to inform young people and Clubs staff about the effects of the misuse of alcohol.
  • Training– for other services and youth consumers e.g. cultural diversity training
