On Wednesday 20th July, we celebrated the official launch of our Social Enterprise ‘fiXit’ at our new Sunshine West workshop. The event was a huge success, with a great turn out that included guests, donors, staff, young people and their parents. A few of our partners – Gandel Metals, Audi Foundation and Bosch – were also able to come out to celebrate the launch with us.
During our fiXit launch last month, the Audi Foundation generously donated an Audi A7 Sportback. This vehicle equipped with new and advance technology, will enable young people to develop and expand their mechanical skills and knowledge.
We were thrilled to also have valued partners Gandel Metals and Bosch attend the launch. As our partnership with Bosch strengthens, they have offered placement opportunities to Hand Brake Turn graduates and fiXit employees to further assist their careers in the automotive industry.
As part of his new appointment as president of Rotary Club Central Melbourne, Rohan Williams joined Anne Mitchell, STEPS Outreach Service Manager on the steps of Flinders St, Mr Williams was able to witness first-hand the work that our team do to provide support for young people experiencing homelessness.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Rotary Central Melbourne for all of the work they do in supporting disadvantaged young people through partnering with STEPS Outreach Service to help us make a difference in young lives.
We continue to strengthen existing and develop new partnerships that benefit the young people that we work with.
