Advocating for the needs of young people aged 12-17 years, our Youth Workers run all sorts of programs across the board.

Here are some of the programs we run:

FUSION YOUTH

Fusion Youth is an interactive program that allows young people to have fun in a safe environment, experience positive role modelling, and develop life skills and leadership.
Held on a week to week basis during school terms, local youth discover how they can become a positive influence in their world.
We  run Fusion Youth at:
  • Fusion & Alcooringa Centre (176 Ballinger Road Buderim, 4556)
  • Tuesday & Wednesday nights 6-8pm
  • $5 (includes dinner and activities)

FUSION BUS (STREET WORK BUS)

The Fusion Bus (Street Work Bus) is an innovative new project that involved the conversion of a full sized bus into a mobile youth cafe. The bus has been fitted-out in partnership with the Buderim Lions Club and had a shed erected to house the bus thanks to the Buderim Foundation. It will be used at a variety of locations around the Sunshine Coast where youth are hanging out and looking for things to do. It has already operated at the Sunshine Plaza, Kawana Shopping World, Alex Headland Skate park, Sippy Downs Skate Park and kawana Shopping World. It’s now operating at BrightWater (near the Aldi). Along with this the MyBus in partnership with SeaFM.

PLACES YOU WILL SEE THE FUSION MYBUS:

  • Sippy Downs Skate Park (Sir Raleigh Drive) Thursday afternoons from 3:30pm to 5pm

The bus is equipped with a variety of features including:

  • Kitchen with fridge, microwave and sink
  • Air conditioner
  • Xbox lounge

Sponsors of the MyBus project are:
