Giving our young people a voice

In partnership with the Rotary Club of Upper Yarra, Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank® branches have funded local Aleksei Bondarenko-Edwards to establish a community services program.

And the aim of this program? To identify and address some of the key challenges faced by young people in the valley.

These include poor access to public transport, poor access to support services, low levels of engagement with tertiary education and high risk factors particularly relevant to young people.

This program will empower young people to create change for themselves, their peers and the Upper Yarra community.
