Teens learn the ropes

SOUTH Gippsland FReeZA presented an event management training workshop in Leongatha on Saturday, presented by Jamie Cooke from The Push.

The training session was aimed at the region’s young people, to give them an insight into the many facets of event management.

South Gippsland Shire Council community strengthening officer Sophie Dixon said there were many community events  young people could become involved with.

She said young people were more comfortable becoming involved with more training.

“Hopefully the young people who attended Saturday’s workshop go on to run their own events for young people in their own space,” she said.

“Event management is growing as a career option as well.”

The FReeZA committee will be holding a song writing workshop on Saturday, August 19.
