NEW SUCCESS HELPING TEENS TURN AWAY FROM CRIME

Police, social workers and McDonalds restaurants have teamed up to get local teens into work.

The latest training course from Project Booyah is helping youth from a disadvantaged background learn skills, such as customer service.

It’s helped 15 year old Talia Mitchell turn away from crime and head towards a career in engineering.

“My mum and stuff like that have had a very rough past and I’ve overcome that during this course and it’s made me very happy and yes I have been in trouble with the law but I said when I entered this course, I left that behind me” said Talia.

The life changing efforts of Project Booyah have just been recognised with a Premier’s Industry Collaboration Award.
