When School's Out, it's all fun and games for local young people

23-Nov-2018

Mai-Wel’s newest lifestyle and leisure initiative, School’s Out, is the first of a new range of services available from The Hub Maitland and The Hub Cessnock for local young people with a disability. 

Katrina Sharman, Mai-Wel’s Life FUNdamentals Facilitator, says the initiative is a great opportunity for young people from 12 years of age, to meet new people, have fun and develop life skills in a supportive environment. 

“While School’s Out activities are predominantly a social opportunity, they are tailored for young people,” she says. 

“We work with the participants to ensure that each activity is based around the interests of everyone involved. We go where the fun is!

“this initiative is an exciting opportunity for local young people to engage in activities that promote self confidence, skill building and provides a safe space to meet new people and have FUN!”

Each week, young people participate in different activities based either at The Hub or at locations across the community.

Just some of the activities on the cards through to January include a virtual reality experience, Timezone fun at Green Hills and some putt-putt golf at Holey Moly in Charlestown.
