Hawaiian Ride For Youth

On Tuesday, 23 March North Albany SHS hosted the start of the Hawaiian Ride For Youth. The Ride aims to remove the stigma surrounding youth mental health and raise funds for Youth Focus to build a more resilient community.

The Ride starts in Albany and divides into three separate routes over 700km’s through the South West, Wheatbelt and Central regions for five days, arriving in Perth on Saturday 27 March. Last year, the Hawaiian Ride for Youth raised $1.9 million to support Youth Focus.

Youth Focus is a friendly, unique organisation supporting vulnerable young people in Western Australia.

Youth Focus operates with a team of highly trained and skilled psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists. They provide a range of early intervention and prevention services free of charge to young people and their families.

A big thank you to our Year 8 Band for keeping the students entertained during the morning. NASHS is proud to host the Hawaiian Ride opening for Youth once again this year and support the essential services of Youth Focus.
