The Dunn & Lewis Youth Development Foundation Limited
The Dunn & Lewis Youth Development Foundation has a mission of assisting young people to ‘live their best lives’ by creating opportunities for young people that will enhance their social, and emotional well-being. This is achieved through program development and hosting of outreach services. A recent achievement is their F3style employability program, which has served 51 participants, with over 50% finding local work whilst in the program.
The Dunn Lewis Youth Development Foundation was set up to provide young people with better access to services and to create more opportunities for local young people to live their best lives.
The Foundation provides:
– opportunities for youth to enhance their social, personal & vocational skills,
– a recreational facility for young people where they feel comfortable and can nurture their talents,
– and a place for inter-generational connection.
Programs have included alternative education, vocational education and employability courses, counselling and information/referral services, a technology hub, and various recreational activities.
