Youth set out on Epic Adventure
GLADSTONE'S youth are setting out on an Epic Adventure to raise awareness of vital youth services in the community.
The youth management team (YMT) a council initiative, is in the early stages of creating an Amazing Race-style adventure for youth in the area aged 12 to 25.
The team was formed by high school students who saw a lack of understanding and awareness when it came to vital services and support groups in Gladstone.
It aims to promote such facilities as The Haven, EPIC, Blue Care and Anglicare.
The upcoming Epic Adventure will take place on October 16 during Mental Health Week and will be a team-based event solving cryptic clues around the Gladstone CBD.
Youth worker Naomi Irvin has said that the theme of the YMT is ‘be active, get connected and stay involved' which will be the main focus of the adventure.
After the race everyone can wind down and relax with four hours of solid entertainment with six great bands coming out to perform.
The Epic Adventure should not be missed.
