Open Mic Night – Woorabinda

I am currently working with a group of early school leavers at Woorabinda. These young people (aged 16 to 25) are planning and conducting an ” open mic night” on the 12th October at the Kangaroo Stadium. The aim of this project is to develop their employablity skills, and each have taken on roles in the areas of their interest. They are working hard to ensure the evening is fun and successful and overcoming personal barriers and challenges.
They have decided to sell softdrinks and chips in order to pay for the free sausage sizzle, that they will put on for the young people attending the event.

Back on Track will be loaning them the money to purchase the food, softdrinks and chips and they will pay their expenses from the takings of their sales, learning about small business principles, risk management, self management and deadlines.

The trainees and I are seeking donations in the form of prizes from orgainsations in the community. These donations will be given as prizes for the varioius sections of the open mic, including “best dance move” best singing” “most entertaining” etc.
Example of prizes: Tshirts, caps, chocolates, MP3 players, footballs, handballs, etc anything that can be used by children in the community of Woorabinda.

Kind regards,
