Van a fountain for youth

February 17, 2017

Save the Children's MYvan or mobile youth van recently travelled to Euroa to engage its youth.

A Save the Children youth initiative rolled its way to Euroa for an Evolve Youth event at the town’s pool.

MYvan, or mobile youth van, uses vans as a hub for music, digital media and sport and was on hand for Euroa’s youth to enjoy last week.

‘‘The event was held to engage young people in Euroa,’’ Evolve Youth’s Inga Weber said.

With the Rotary Club of Euroa helping out on the barbecue, about 200 guests enjoyed food, great company and music pumping from the van.

‘‘MYvan gave the kids iPads and waterproof GoPros to try out,’’ Ms Weber said.

According to Save the Children’s website, the MYvan can operate out of a park, youth centre, sports ground, school or anywhere children and young people congregate.

‘‘Outreach services that provide activities such as sport, music and art can greatly benefit young people who live in remote, isolated or disadvantaged communities,’’ it read.

Ms Weber said the event was not only a way of bringing the community together but it also provided something for young people in the town.

‘‘We’re looking to do the event again,’’ Ms Weber said.

‘‘Possibly at another pool in the next pool season.’’
