This evening I attended an information session for parents prepared by Maroondah’s Youth Services Team, which outlined the events hosted through the EV’s Youth Centre in Croydon.
The Information Session had a particular emphasis on the FReA program which consists of twelve young people who are responsible for organising and managing musical gigs at EV’s, including promotion, stage management, signing of bands and catering. This year’s FreeZA group have called themselves Amplified Productions and have already organised a number of events, including the youth stage at the Maroondah Festival.
The information session concluded with the indie artist night organised by Amplified Productions. The evening predominately featured local bands allowing these groups to be seen and heard by their local community.
EV’s holds a number of programs available for Maroondah’s youth, for more information please visit www.evsyouthcentre.com.
