Youth Week Celebrations 2019

BNC’s Youth Week event was awesome!

Each year, Belmont Neighbourhood Centre hosts an event to celebrate the contribution of young people to our community. This years event focused on Self-empowerment, healthy eating, well being, mental health and social connectedness.

About 30 youth participants joined us for some group activities:

  • Lifeline spoke about tips and tools to manage anxiety and mental health
  • Department of Fair Trading spoke about consumer rights and online shopping
  • Leesa provided hand massage and pampering
  • Sarah from Community Activities Lake Macquarie facilitated ice breakers and interactive games
  • We made a delicious and nutritious stir fry for lunch
  • and had fun in the photo booth!

Here are some of the photographs from the Photo Booth and of the different presenters on the day.
