The team at Diversitat Youth are very proud to announce that across our 3 youth programs- Xpress, SWEET & Young Parents- we had 12 VCAL graduates in 2015. This is an exceptional achievement for our students who have worked hard all year and some of last year to produce some outstanding results. Congratulations to those 12 students!
This year students, staff and guests were treated to a special Christmas Lunch and Graduation organised by youth staff, held out at the Spanish Club in North Geelong. Students arrived and were treated to the ‘hollywood experience’ with a red carpet and photo shoot upon arrival.
Staff lovingly decorated the hall and cooked a 2 course Christmas meal for the students before awarding students with plaques and certificates of achievement for their efforst in the VCAL program during 2015. Students who were leaving us also received an individualised gift to say goodbye.
We also proudly presented cheques worth $1400 to the Food Relief Program and Refugee Christmas Appeals within Diversitat on the day – a proud moment for students who worked tirelessly during the year to raise this money from the Community Mud Challenge held in October.
Our team would like to congratulate all VCAL graduates on their acheivements in 2015 and would like to wish you all the very best in your ventures beyond the Diversitat doors.
A special goodbye to those graduates and students leaving us in 2015 and again we would like to wish all those young people the very best with future endeavours.
Thank you to the Spanish Club for allowing us to hold our event each year at your club rooms, your generosity is very much appreciated.
We look forward to an even bigger and better 2016!
