Barker to Bridge Youth service is a group of local volunteers, who came together after recognizing the need for more user friendly supports for youth and their families, particularly in some of the more rural areas where isolation may be an issue.
Future projects will comprise of rural mobile youth groups and events based on youth input.
We will be encouraging participants to build their own skills with self-fundraising and organizing projects along with supporting their peers.
We also support Mentoring opportunities among members.
There will be workshops and classes held throughout the year, some will be ongoing classes and some will be on an occasional basis.
We are also more than happy to take suggestions from youth and parents.
Barker to Bridge covers the Mt Barker to Murray Bridge regions of the Adelaide Hills and Murraylands.
Youth groups will be set up for Monarto, Callington, Kanmantoo, Strathalbyn and Nairne shortly
