A youth group for the whole community.
Gnarly Neighbours is a non for profit youth group with the main focus on creating a positive space for kids & young adults, community building, positive mentoring, pathway training/ support, inspiring creativeness & individuality, teaching life long skills with the key point of making it relevant and fun.
HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT!
100% of donations go directly towards the youth group. Ultimately creating more opportunity for running programs and workshops to get kids off their screens, socialising with other kids of all ages and most of all having fun.
Donations will make a huge difference to our Youth Group. It would enable us to purchase more equipment for our creative skate/ creative workshops so the kids don’t have or can’t afford boards and safety gear, don’t feel excluded. All creative workshops and skate programs are all always FREE!
Quorra has been attending the weekly classes at the skate park. During these sessions she has developed many new skills and I have noticed her self-confidence has grown. These lessons have helped her to further develop her identity and have the courage to try new things.
While attending the lessons I have also seen so many other kids in our community joining in and furthering their skills. Jayden is well respected at the skate park by skaters , children and parents.
Thank you, Gnarly Neighbours, and thank you Jayden for all your hard work and dedication.
Recently my son James was keen to do some skate lessons as his friends was doing them. Being ADHD and having autism it was hard for me. to let him do them.
After chatting to Jayden and expressing our concerns we were pleased that he was so understanding and took on what we said. Jayden focused on getting him comfortable as well as teaching the safety and basics to the other kids at the same time.
I can not speak highly enough of Gnarly Neighbours. My son has not stopped asking when he can go back and that was only the first session!
You are doing such an amazing job with the kids there and I have to admit I wouldn't take my granddaughter there previously. I found it too scary not knowing anything about the the skatepark and worrying of her getting hurt. With your help and support she is learning and loving it!
But most of all I'm confident to take her and not fear the injury side of things so much because of the wonderful lessons you are giving all the kids on safety as well as skills. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
My son Aysa has been attending a youth group with Gnarly Neighbours in Seymour. He was thrilled to commence learning how to skate lessons with some of his close friends. He has thoroughly enjoyed his time with Jayden and his skills have improved dramatically.
We are very grateful that sessions such as these are available for our local children, giving them something positive and constructive to do in a friendly, inclusive atmosphere.
