LINKS TO LEARNING BOYS SHED
The Links To Learning ‘Boys Shed program’ is made up of young men in grades 7-10 along with 2 youth workers who work on a meaningful project throughout the term, while at the same time discovering different aspects of what it means to be a man.
The grade 10 St Clair Boys Shed group decided it would be great to learn how to cook while learning how to help people for their meaningful project. On Tuesday 15 August the Boys Shed groups hosted a community lunch for the ‘Cecil’s Place Men’s social group’ that runs every
Wednesday fortnightly at the Autumnleaf Neighbourhood Centre.
The boys organised a popup burger café, with for the day nicknaming themselves ‘the burger boys’ where they served food and had great conversation. It was a great day where the boys hosted both Community Junction staff and the Men’s group. One of the men mentioned it was “great food” and another said “great interaction- very polite, respectful and we want them back every fortnight.
