Are you aged between 16 to 25 and passionate about young people in the Riverland? Are you interested in developing new skills, meeting and working with other young people who are also passionate about making a difference, then headspace Berri wants you!
headspace Berri is looking for enthusiastic and motivated young people to join our headspace Berri hERO Group for 2020.
What is headspace Berri’s hERO Group?
The hERO group is a group of young people from our Riverland community that have made a commitment to regularly engage with, be responsive to and contribute their voice to their peers and to our headspace Berri centre. “It is a great opportunity for young people to develop skills and reduce the stigma surrounding young people and issues that impact on their health and wellbeing,” said headspace Manager Gemma Nickolai.
“headspace believe it is important to involve young people in the planning of youth participation strategies and activities, to provide a greater sense of ownership and a genuine partnership. We want headspace centres to be inviting to young people and boosting community awareness of headspace services to the Riverland community is important,” says Mrs Nickolai.
Previous hERO group member says, “I have learnt to push my own limits, prove that I was more than my anxiety lead me to believe and most importantly to have purpose. hERO group gives me something to strive for and always challenges me to move past what is going on in my head. The hERO group gives me motivation to help others and be the best me I can be”.
