Youth Off The Streets hosts open air cinema event
Youth Off The Streets Holroyd Outreach invites community members to come along to an open air cinema event on Friday 10 April. The Avengers (2012) will be screened from 6:00pm at Merrylands Park.
Holroyd Outreach is partnering with Holroyd Youth Services to bring a family and young person friendly event to Merrylands during Youth Week. The event will start at 5:00pm with free popcorn, drinks and a BBQ on offer.
The movie will begin at 6:00pm and those wishing to attend are encouraged to bring blankets and foldable chairs along to the park.
Holroyd Outreach runs recreational activities and a BBQ every Friday night at Merrylands Park, but it was nice to do something special for National Youth Week says Father Chris Riley, CEO and Founder at Youth Off The Streets.
“Our Holroyd Outreach is at Merrylands Park every Friday night. To celebrate Australia’s youth during National Youth Week we thought it would be a great idea to bring the community together and watch a movie.”
“Holroyd Outreach is a safe place for young people to chill out with friends and engage with the community. Our team of youth workers are always there to meet their needs and this event will be no different,” he says.
Holroyd Outreach is part of Youth Off The Streets’ community Outreach Programs funded by the National Crime Prevention Fund in April 2013. The programs have achieved great success through engaging disconnected young people across communities in need.
Youth Off The Streets Mission:
Helping young people to discover greatness within, by engaging, supporting and providing opportunities to encourage and facilitate positive life choices.
About Youth Off The Streets:
Youth Off The Streets is a community organisation working for young people who are homeless, drug dependent and recovering from abuse. We support these young people as they work to turn their lives around and overcome immense personal traumas such as neglect and physical, psychological and emotional abuse.
Since opening in 1991, Youth Off The Streets has grown from a single food van delivering meals to young homeless people on the streets of Kings Cross to a major youth specific agency providing a wide range of services offering a full continuum of care.
It is our goal that these young people will leave our care drug free, with a high school education, living skills and a full or part time job in hand.
