Two inspiring Buderim Foundation breakfasts supporting youth
The Buderim Foundation is hosting two breakfasts with a strong focus on supporting young people in the Buderim community.
With youth support as a core objective for the Foundation and with a number of successful youth projects under its belt, the Foundation is formalising its focus on youth needs by launching a specific Youth Sub-Fund. The breakfasts are an effective way to raise awareness about the purpose of this fund and to provide early momentum.
The first breakfast this Friday 27th May will feature Buderim Mountain State School’s Chappy Dave, Sunny Kids’ Chris Turner & Fusion’s Jesse O’Neil. They will discuss ‘Young people – their aspirations, their needs and their achievements’.
The second breakfast on June 17th will highlight the achievements of Young Australians of the Year Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett, founders of Orange Sky Laundry. They will share the inspiring story of how they launched and grew their social enterprise ‘Orange Sky Laundry – so much more than a mobile laundry for the homeless’.
Foundation Chair Prof. Paul Clark said the Foundation’s breakfasts were not just about fund raising but a great opportunity for people to find out more about how young people are supported in the area and of course, how young people are inspiring others by their example.
Both breakfasts will be at the Buderim Tavern, 7am – 8.45am
