Funding benefits youth
THE year ahead is looking bright for local youth after seven North Coast projects, including four Coffs Coast initiatives, secured a share of $75,000 of funding under the NSW Commission for Children and Young People's Better Futures Strategy.
The four Coffs Coast projects that secured funding support are the Coffs Harbour Multicultural Harmony Festival, Nambucca Valley Youthfest, Bellingen M.A.D.E and the Mmacksville High School's Local Aboriginal Artists in Residence project.
The Youthfest Event funding will be administered by the Bowraville-based MiiMi Aboriginal Corporation.
MiiMi's Youthfest Program will join next year forces with Slippry Sirkus to deliver a three-day camp at Valla Tourist Park from January 31 to February 2.
The camp will run at no cost to participants, however, selection is based on an application process with only 21 places available for local youth.
Applications close on January 14. To apply contact Karina Scarth on 6564 8855 or firstname.lastname@example.org
