YACS and Little Rainbows Term 1, 2024

Do you have children between 10 and 17 years who would like to meet other children from Rainbow Families for activities run by Sydney High School teacher, Geoffrey Parry-Ewing? 

Location

We've just moved to Erskinville so we look forward to any local families coming along for the first time :)

Little Rainbows is open to the younger 10-12 age group, and offers an opportunity for social connection and age appropriate activities.

Youth Council (or the “YAC”) is attended by older cohorts of 13-17 year olds, where they develop projects and initiatives for young people and young adults in the community, and work to raise the profile of Rainbow Families amongst younger audiences. Older members also carry out the very important role of mentoring our younger members.

Each group meets twice a month over food and fun activities. 

Both the YAC and Little Rainbows give members an opportunity to forge friendships, develop new skills and build a strong and articulate next generation. 

Typically each meet-up will begin with a more formal meeting to discuss projects and future events, followed by a group activity and light dinner (pizza).

How do we join?

The Youth Council is open to any child or young person who is part of the Rainbow Families community.

You will need to fill in our Registration Form and make contact with our Youth Council Coordinator ahead of dropping in to your first session to get acquainted and provide us with important info to help organise catering and activities. 

Keep an eye on our upcoming family events for other youth-focused activities.

We meet in the Inner West

Youth Council meetings occur alongside the school calendar at an Inner West location. As we are a drop-in space, you DO NOT need to attend all sessions, to take part in the Youth Council.

Getting involved

Young people can join the YAC by contacting us - also check out our upcoming family events for youth-focused activities.
