The City’s Zone Youth Space will be holding an afternoon tea this Friday (9 November) to celebrate Youth Work Week, which this year runs from 5 to 11 November and is themed “What is Youth Work?” highlighting the importance of the Youth Work profession.

This event is an opportunity to hear from the Zone’s Youth team about the fantastic work that they do in the Kwinana community and as part of Youth Work Week to explore the changing landscape for youth work and celebrate the incredible difference it makes to young people’s lives.

Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the City placed a high level of importance on making local youth services easily accessible to young people.

‘Youth workers in Kwinana do a fantastic job of engaging the young community and helping them to reach their potential,” she said.

“The Zone Youth Space wouldn’t be what it is today without the impact of those who work there. We truly are very fortunate to have such a talented and engaging team of youth workers who really do love their jobs and offer great support and guidance to our young people.”

“As one of the fastest growing areas in the state, it is important that we provide young people of Kwinana the best possible opportunity to succeed through programs such as the LyriK- (Leadership, Youth, Respect in Kwinana) program, the City’s Educational Scholarships and facilities such as the Zone Youth Space.”

City of Kwinana boasts an award winning team with youth worker, Tanya Halliday taking out the 2017 WA Emerging Youth Worker Award. These awards acknowledge and celebrate the positive impact that Youth Workers play in the lives of Western Australian young people. ​

Come down to the Zone Youth Space this Friday to meet the team and hear more about the amazing work they do in the Kwinana community. ​​​
