Rosies National Newsletter Spring 2015

rosies_newsletter_spring2015The Rosies Newsletter is out now and available for download – click here for your copy!

Our front cover tells the story of Lucy* a teenager  who ran away from home. She dropped out of school and faces homelessness. Her story is unfortunately too common.

In this edition we join our volunteers in our Youth Detention Centre Outreach.

We also launch our “cuppa4rosies” campaign and acknowledge the amazing initiatives taken from the many schools and youth groups around the state.

Rosies is the longest serving community organisation at the Gold Coast Schoolies. As such we will operate a Recharge Zone outreach where participant can sit, relax and recover.

While you’re at it, why not print out a copy to leave in the lunch room?
