CHILDREN & YOUTH
We help young people create their place in the world.
Fusion began in the 1960’s as a movement led by young people. We wanted to give space for other young people to see themselves and their future differently. No matter what background, what cultural influences may be holding them back, we see every young person as deserving of a strong future.
Our team of highly qualified and passionate youth workers aim to meet today’s youth where they’re at, and so we are continually developing and evolving our range of programs to stay ahead of the issues impacting our culture. Our goal is to mentor and encourage young people to step beyond what they know of themselves, to discover their full potential and find their purpose in life.
When young people have strong relationships with their peers, parents/carers, other significant adults and strong connections in their schools and communities they have the potential to prosper.
It’s our values of justice, mercy, compassion, respect and industry which are the basis to Fusion’s youth work. We incorporate them into the design, goals, operational practices and the delivery of our programs, where staff, volunteers, students and others in Fusion work together to build skills and establish community connections, places where individual young people can thrive.
We help young people find purpose.
We help young people explore their creativity through arts programs such as Create, through internships and music and performance based after school programs.
We help young people develop skills and enter the workforce through our mentoring programs, barista courses and workplace training.
We help young people connect and grow through team and volunteers meetings, festivals, Day Trips, Adventure Based Learning, and holiday camps, alongside helping them to engage with and foster their passion for social justice issues through peace projects and Vote Not Fight Campaign.
