BA5 hosted by Marlborough Youth Trust
Join us for hot chocolates, coffee, pumpkin soup and some youth baking at their MYSPACE premises which are behind Stadium 2000. The youth will be there to take people on a tour through MYSPACE and they will talk about the two programmes they currently have running KRUMP and Power Hooping.
Marlborough Youth Trust provide services to communities, groups and individuals that enables, supports and encourages the development and well-being of the young people of Marlborough.
In 1997, a significant youth needs assessment was undertaken in Marlborough as a joint project between the Marlborough Safer Community Group (MSCG), the Marlborough District Council and the St Marks Forum.
The research showed an overwhelming need for a place in central Blenheim where young people could undertake a variety of activities, socialise and ‘be themselves’ in a drug, alcohol & smoke free environment. Again, in 1999, MSCG and Council joined forces to run ‘Youth Summit Marlborough 1999’.
Over 120 young people from around the province came together at the summit to workshop issues for youth and identify achievable solutions to those issues. The need for a youth facility was again strongly identified. As a consequence, the Marlborough Youth Trust was established in 2000.
This is a FREE event for our members and are a great opportunity for people to network with other local businesses.
