Viva Energy support YFC through a great 2018
Viva Energy have again generously supported the headspace Geelong Youth Futures Crew (YFC) throughout 2018 helping them build their capacity and raise awareness of mental health in the Geelong Community.
Members of the YFC are passionate advocates for mental health and join the group to encourage help seeking and reduce stigma around mental illness in the community. The sponsorship from Viva Energy has allowed the YFC to build their capacity and confidence to work with the community promoting mental health.
The funds have seen our YFC members undertake Youth Mental Health First Aid Training, Accidental Counselor Training, Cultural Awareness Training and Public Speaking Training. They have also allowed the YFC to run numerous events in the community including RU OK Day at The fOrT and Inflate Your Mind- an event for Mental Health Month at the Geelong Waterfront as well as being a part of other community events like the Humans in Geelong Expo, The SKAART Festival, Just Think Round with Geelong Cats and the headcoach launch at Lara Sporting Club.
The YFC are so thankful for the support from Viva Energy and are looking forward to continuing to dream big in 2019!
