3Bridges Community Youth Zone

Mr MARK COURE (OatleyMinister for Multiculturalism, and Minister for Seniors)

——Speaker, I rise to commend 3Bridges Community for their Youth Zone program, providing a safe space for young people in the St George area. Being a teen or preteen comes with its own unique set of challenges and 3Bridges Community understands this. Located next to Penshurst Park, 3Bridges Community have established a space which is completely devoted to supporting teens in a welcoming and friendly environment. There are a range of activities available, including pool, video games, a music area, and a chill-out room. There are always case managers and staff available that can provide support and guidance. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the facility and getting to chat to some of the youth that attend, as well as all the wonderful staff. I would like to thank Layton and Vanessa who were incredibly, as well as the CEO Raj Nair. I truly commend you on all the fantastic work you do for our community. I look forward to supporting 3Bridges Community and the Youth Zone in the near future.
