Empowering Youth Program heads to the Eyre Peninsula.

Friday, November 28, 2014

Last week the Eyre Peninsula played host to staff Power Community Ltd as they embarked on the first regional trip for the newly improved Empowering Youth Program thanks to Beyond Bank whose community staff also attended. Beyond have a strong community focus and were more than happy to support the initiative to take this amazing program to regional schools.

The Empowering Youth program encourages secondary school students to take responsibility for themselves and others by making positive decisions in relation to their health, lifestyle, finances and career path. 

The group visited schools in Pt Lincoln, Whyalla and Pt Augusta where they were joined by new recruit Johann Wagner who spoke to students about what it takes to be a good leader and having respect for oneself and all those around us. 

The PAFC thanks Beyond Bank for their ongoing support in our community programs and look forward to taking the Empowering Youth to more regional schools in the near future we are kicking goals together.
