Welcome to the new Youth Advocates Group of headspace Hurstville!
Since headspace Hurstville was launched in 2015, we’ve been lucky enough to have a thriving and committed Youth Advocates Group (formerly known as the Youth Reference Group). Sadly for us, many of our Youth Advocates who have been with us for years are moving on to exciting new adventures- making room for a new generation of the Y.A.G! This January we recruited 13 new members to the Y.A.G, and let me tell you…they are awesome! They are passionate, creative, and so keen to get out there and advocate for youth mental health in their community. Watch this space for what our Y.A.G dream team will get up to this year.
In the meantime, here’s a throwback to the amazing project developed and successfully implemented by the Y.A.G in 2020! They partnered with 3 Bridges Youth Zone to run a ‘Wind It Back Wednesday’ Trivia Night online. After a tough year, this event brought some much needed fun, connection and good old nostalgia to the young people who came along. Check it out- do you remember the name of the purple Teletubby?
