Chill Out Zone

Thanks to the Strathalbyn & Surrounds Spectrum Connection, there will be a Chillout Space at YouTHRIVE for any young people who would like to escape the crowds. Sometimes lots of people and noise can be overwhelming. Located in the Show Hall, the Chillout Space offers a place to relax and try some quieter activities.

Get Involved!                   

Do you have a great idea for a market stall? Would you like an opportunity to fundraise for your group or an important cause?       

If so we would love to hear from you! Get involved in this year’s SA Youth Week celebrations in Strathalbyn in one of the following ways:

Have a market stall If you’re an artist, or make great jewellery, or are a gun at hair-wrapping, then why not have a stall as part of our youth market.  This is a great opportunity to kick off your business and make some $$$s.

Run an activity Maybe you’d like to raise some funds for a charity or community group or have a fun activity you’d like to offer.  This could be anything – games, sports, sideshow activities – whatever you’d like to do.

Volunteer We would love some extra pairs of hands to help run the event so if you like doing your bit for your local community get involved!
