Almost 50% of Kurrawa SLSC’s membership is under the age of 18 and we acknowledge that Youth members have unique needs due to their social, emotional and physical development and growth. Consequently, we aim to establish an environment that nurtures these members and provides them with an opportunity to grow.
It is recognised that surf lifesaving programs, and in particular Kurrawa SLSC, plays a vital role in developing not only the physical aspect but also the psychological, social and emotional attributes of young people. Kurrawa SLSC’s youth development program provides a safe, educational and enjoyable environment that promotes the Australian way of life and a healthy active lifestyle.
To ensure that our youth are being engaged, co-ordinated, recognised, rewarded and mentored, senior members of Kurrawa have undertaken a number of key initiatives and a long term commitment to working with our young people.
Kurrawa SLSC’s Youth Development Officer is a member of the club’s Membership Services Board who is in turn part of the club’s Executive committee.
