Youth off the Streets accepts the MAX Sydney South West donation of $5,940 to support struggling youth

After a hugely successful Christmas campaign, MAX sites in the Sydney South West region presented a whopping $5,940 donation to local charity Youth Off The Streets yesterday, helping disadvantaged youth turn their lives around.

As part of MAX’s 2016 Christmas campaign, the Sydney South West region placed 1,188 job seekers into work, with $5 for every placement going to Youth Off The Streets. 

The donation will help support disadvantaged and disconnected youth at the Koch Centre for Youth and Learning.

Centre Manager Ngapera Paki said the organisation has been working with young people in Macquarie Fields since January 2011.


“The Koch Centre for Youth and Learning is a safe place for young people to re-engage with education, employment and the community,” Ms Paki said. 

 


“Our Centres for Youth provide young people with the support, skills and opportunities they need to turn their lives around. The Koch Centre is also home to EDEN College, our accredited independent school for students in Year 9 and Year 10. 

“Youth Off The Streets would like to thank MAX for their generous donation and for assisting with our continued support of young people in the Macquarie Fields region,” she said.

Sydney South West Regional Manager Audra Tuckwood said MAX is proud to be part of a very worthy cause. 

“Youth Off The Streets is a fantastic organisation; they help disadvantaged youth to stay at school and further their education,” she said. 


“A lot of them come from difficult circumstances so it’s a great approach to getting them through and finishing school. 

 


“It’s good to know that the funds we’ve raised are contributing to that, making a difference in their lives.” 

The 2016 MAX Christmas campaign resulted in 18,844 people finding work nationally, with more than $94,000 in donations going towards local charities including Rosies - Friends on the Street, Lifeline and Anglicare.
