It is so good to hear that last week our CREWY team (Creating Real Experiences With Youth) took the Hand Brake Turn students on a trip to Werribee Zoo – an amazing opportunity for the young people to get up close with ostriches, elephants, lions and reptiles… a well deserved experience!
For many of the young attendees, this was their first time at the Zoo, and clearly, one of the most important reasons why we run CREWY.
CREWY was established in 2020, and emerged as an amazing initiative created by our youth workers to provide fun excursions and activities for young people that they would otherwise be unable to access. The project caters to the young people within our care who predominantly miss out on family excursions, activities and holidays exploring regional Victoria in all it’s beauty.
This is especially important to Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander young people in our care who have often never experienced connection to the land.
