Liverpool Opportunity Hub Host Community Consultation Event

The Souths Cares Liverpool Opportunity Hub had the pleasure of hosting their first-ever Parent and Community event on Wednesday 9th February at one of our local community partners, The Whitlam Leisure Centre.

This is the first time the team has hosted such an event that brought together current and prospective students, their parents and guardians, schools and other community stakeholders that work in the education and employment sectors.

The afternoon kicked off with guest registrations, afternoon tea and informal networking. The Opportunity Hub team then delivered an engaging presentation, showcasing their Term 1 workshop content which will be teaching students a range of topics including Welcome to Country protocols and public speaking, cultural respect, leadership, and goal setting.

The event also included current students speaking in front of the audience and sharing how the program has had a positive impact on their educational journey.

Levi Mahony is a current program participant and shared with the audience the profound impact the Opportunity Hub has had on him.

 “A highlight of my time in the program was definitely the leadership camp we attended last year. Getting painted up in ochre, learning some cultural dances and performing with the boys in front of an audience is an experience I will never forget.

It really made me proud to be Aboriginal and I felt better coming into the new school year after the camp”, Levi said.

Liverpool Opportunity Hub Program Coordinator, Bianca Williams said the turnout was positive for the first event of its nature.

“We’re launching new initiatives in 2022 in South Western Sydney with consultation, collaboration and innovation key to our service delivery. This event was a great opportunity to invite the people that matter to our program together to learn more about the Hub and how we’re supporting their children through our program this year”, Bianca said.

The Liverpool Opportunity Hub launched in 2020 as part of a partnership with NSW State Training Services to support Aboriginal school students in Liverpool LGA from grade five until after they finish school and transition into further education, training, or employment.
