Diversitat Reconnect Colac was a proud sponsor of the 2019 Colac Otway Youth Celebrations and Awards on the 12th of April. The afternoon was filled with music, laughter and applause for the Young Achievers of Colac Otway and surrounds. The entertainment was provided by food stalls, a photo booth, night markets and live acts.
The Reconnect program had a fantastic night with the honour of sponsoring the Inspiration award. Tyison Willamson received this award for his amazing efforts to support others, represent his school all in the face of challenges of living independently.
Another highlight was our own Reconnect participant, Elizabeth Dietrich receiving the runner up Business award for her hard work to address challenges, complete her Certificate IV in Disability with Diversitat Training and obtain employment in her chosen industry of Disability Support.
We are very proud and delighted with the accomplishments of our young people. We are also grateful for the supporting organisations and collaborations that makes the Colac Otway Shire such an amazing place.
