Palmerston Youth Activities Grant Funding Review 2021


Palmerston Youth Activities Grant Funding Review 2021

Palmerston Youth Activity Grant Funding Evaluation Report was launched on 13 May 2021.

Palmerston and Regional Basketball Association (PaRBA) was grateful to host the launch of the Palmerston Youth Activity Grant Funding evaluation report at the Palmerston Recreation Centre.

Since early 2018 local community organisations have received funding from the Northern Territory Governments Regional Youth Grants Program to deliver activities for young people, aged 10 to 17 years after hours and during school holidays.

The City of Palmerston is a major partner in the delivery of the Youth Drop in Sports(YDIS) program.

The evaluation was conducted by Gretchen Ennis, of Useful Projects, and demonstrated that connections exist between local services and young people, these connections increased young people's positive behaviour and more safe spaces exist for young people in Palmerston to attend.

Pictured receiving the report is City of Palmerston Mayor, Mrs Athina Pascoe-Bell, representatives from Larrakia Nation, YMCA, PaRBA, Youth Mentor Mikaella on behalf of PaRBA, Palmerston Youth Regional Network Coordinator, Sally Weir, and Gretchen Ennis from Useful Projects.
