Our second last stop on the Convoy of Courage brings us to Dubbo. Before setting up the Mobile Youth Centre, we were lucky enough to treat the young people of Youth Off The Streets to the afternoon at Dubbo Zoo, where there were able to see and get up close to the animals.
Following the zoo, the Mobile Youth Centre parked and set up on Pioneer Oval, West Dubbo where we had a huge turnout of local kids who were quick to join in on the activities. Another BBQ was set up for the kids and local community as well as a variety of fun games for the kids.
Youth Off The Streets would like to commend the young people we brought along on the journey for their kindness and positivity; as they were very quick to welcome the local kids and make friends. Local kids enjoyed and valued our Mobile Youth Centre so much, one local young person spoke to the crowd to thank us for coming and setting up the visit!
Following the young locals, Jason Yelverton of Dubbo Youth Council addressed the crowd, as well as a senior member of the Youth Off The Streets Staff.
The next morning, the team hosted a BBQ morning tea at Pioneer Oval, which featured traditional dances, games and a speech from the Youth Off The Streets Director of Aboriginal Services.
To Convoy of Courage has now made its way to Bourke.
A special thanks to Clubs NSW, and Dubbo RSL for providing dinner for our stay in Dubbo.
