The Base is a multi-purpose, community youth centre designed to support young people in our community by offering a safe and inclusive environment, available to young people aged 13-18 years old. Our space has been created to function as a drop-in youth centre, as well as a community space available for higher, where other organisations can offer programs to meet community needs. The venue has been designed with the needs of young people at heart. In addition to offering a comfortable meeting space, The Base offers a movie theatre, dance/yoga studio, and will soon have an operating social enterprise coffee window – Where young people can gain practical work experience and learn transferable workplace skills.
It is our vision to offer young people a supportive environment and inclusive opportunities. The venue has been in development over the past 18 months through the hardships experienced during the COVID-19 Pandemic and we’re now on the cusp of opening our doors. In order to achieve our vision of offering young people a ‘home away from home’ we require the support of a few excellent volunteers.
As The Base begins operations we will require a Grant Writer to assist our director in sourcing and applying for grants that will assist in expanding and improving our programs and facilities.
If you have experience in this field and would love to be considered for this role, we’d love to hear from you.
