This evening I attended the graduation event for Maroondah’s FReeZA group which operates through Maroondah’s EV’s Youth Centre in Croydon.
FReeZA allows for a committee of a dozen people aged between 12 and 25 to organise music and cultural events over a twelve-month period. This year’s group hosted nine music events almost twice as many as the five events that are required.
FReeZA provides a unique opportunity for young people to get involved in the organising, planning and promotion of events in a fun and supportive environment. Each of the young volunteers appeared to have not only learnt management and meeting skills but also had enjoyed their time in the program and I wish them well in their future endeavours.
