Well Thursday afternoon was a range of emotions! I was asked to go and have a chat with the youth group at The ROAR Initiative Inc at Northlake’s. As this was my first speaking role I was VERY VERY nervous. As it turned out I had nothing to worry about because all these teenagers and young kids are just like me!
The ROAR Initiative mantra is “Youth Making a Difference in their World”. Wow what a great bunch of kids and a lot of them exactly my same age and all turning 16 in July this year…that was a bit weird but cool! LOL
The youth group is really cool and if you love wildlife I suggest you get in touch with Sherry Bruce the founder of ROAR.
They provide really cool stuff like
- Interactive workshops
- Providing opportunities for questioning, problem solving and evaluation
- Collaboration with peers and others from local and global communities
- Providing experiences with understanding within local and global communities
Experiential learning projects for its youth members will focus on three areas of interest & will include:
- Humanitarian projects
- Environment & Conservation projects
- Media and Art projects that foster environmental and social awareness
On the night I dropped in my friend Martin from Geckoes Wildlife Presentations was there teaching them all about quolls. So I got to see one of my favourite animals and meet amazing new friends. Top night.
To learn more about ROAR go to their web page. I am very happy to tell you that they have agreed to come to the Bribie Gone Wild Wildlife Festival so you can come and meet them all on Saturday the 30th of May.
