It's been a busy period for the City in the Community Melbourne team as they continue to keep our community connected with a number of wonderful initiatives and programs. See what our team has been up to in this week's City in the Community wrap.
We launched our Carers Physical Activity and Wellbeing Program
During Carers Week in October we launched our new program to support Carers as they care for their loved ones.
Carers are a valued part of our community – their tireless and selfless commitment to their loved ones is an inspiration to us all and their contribution to our community cannot be understated.
City in the Community and the Melbourne City Football Club provide innovative ways for carers to be physically active, connect with our community and improve their well-being.
Remote Robotics return to the classroom!
Our team rejoined the classroom to continue our UBTECH Robotics classes, teaching young Melbournians computer coding skills using a mix of programable robots and their love of football to help them understand the importance of understanding and learning about technology as well as the importance of physical activity.
Olympic Village Primary School was the first school to have our classes back as we conducted the session virtually as we continue the road back from COVID-19.
Our Young Leaders lead the way in the Global Summit Youth Council
Our Young Leaders, Gabriella Collins and Abdi Rizak, are participating in the Global Summit Youth Council where they will lead the Asia team, including Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Guangzhou and Bandung, as they strive to find new ways to make a difference in our local community.
The Youth Council will be made up of a number of events throughout October and November across three regions.
Gabriella Collins said: "I'm looking forward to making stronger connections with the other Young Leaders from around the world all striving to make a difference in our communities!"
Abdi Rizak said: " I’m looking forward to make deeper bonds with other young leaders around the world while building a difference in our communities."
