South Port (SA) Youth Retention ProgramSubmitted by Penny Mc Kenzie
The program seeks to retain and increase our youth retention program, to ensure we are able to survive and grow as a viable community service organisation.
Our youth members are the future leaders of not only our club, but also the community.
Problem you're solving
An increase in residents with emergency service training supported through the local community education programs will enhance the preparedness for disaster and avoid potential loss of life. The engagement and retention of youth in the community will improve the clubs ability to respond to rescue situations and deliver a higher standard of service during patrols.
The impact of this program will lead to improved morale and retention of our youth, and develop and increase enthusiasm to continue to serve the local community.
The grant will be spent entirely on recruiting and retaining youth members; with a commitment to education and training. This will ensure the delivery of emergency services and community services in the local community. Such activities include: Surf Rescue Certificates and Bronze Medallion, as well as camps and social activities to promote team bonding and community spirit.
