Scholarship Clubhouse member Samry was recently invited to an awards ceremony at Government House in Sydney where she was awarded the Father Chris Riley Youth Off The Streets scholarship. The scholarship will assist Samry as she commences studying at university next year with the goal of studying nursing and completing a postgraduate study in paramedicine. Samry has been a Clubhouse member for over four years and applied for the scholarship with the support of Tara, Clubhouse Coordinator. Congratulations on your scholarship Samry. We know you are a great investment and look forward to sharing more successes with you in the future! Congratulations to Clubhouse Alumni Hiba Bashir and Awien Deng who were both awarded and Intel Computer Clubhouse C2C scholarship. This scholarship provides funds to support their studies at university. To be selected Hiba and Awien had to provide evidence of their participation in the Clubhouse and dedication to their studies. We are very proud of both of them and look forward to sharing their future successes as they are still regular visitors of the Clubhouse. The Computer Clubhouse has partnered with City of Yarra to create a video highlighting their community grants program. Five alumni of the Computer Clubhouse are involved in the entire process including planning, interviewing, capturing video and photographs and editing. The finished video will be shown at the celebration dinner and uploaded to YouTube. This is one of the Computer Clubhouse’s first formal programme working with Clubhouse Alumni, but as our members continue to graduate and stay connected to the Clubhouse, we will continue to look for opportunities to support the development of our Alumni. The Clubhouse would not be as successful as it is without the dedication of our volunteers and mentors. Many of our mentors have been volunteering with the Clubhouse for over 2 years and continue to mentor the members with the passion and enthusiasm they had when they first began. Many thanks to them. Thank you to all of our supporters over the past 12 months. A special thanks to our long term supporters and main funders, Portland House Foundation. Thanks also to those who have donated to the Clubhouse financially or in kind. The Computer Clubhouse has recently launched its refresh appeal with the fundraising aim of $25,000 to provide high end computer and internet access to over 160 young people, most who do not have access to a computer at home. If you can support the Clubhouse during this appeal, please contact us. Family Albums The Computer Clubhouse partnered with Ecumenical Migration centre to run the “Family Album” project, funded by City of Yarra community grants. Young women and their mothers worked with professional photographer and Clubhouse mentor, Tina Smigielski to learn photography skills and take photos of family. All participants created a photobook to keep and 12 images are currently part of an exhibition that was launched at the Australian Catholic University on 8 March, International Women’s day. The exhibition is currently at the Neighbourhood Justice Centre and will be a feature exhibition at the Richmond Town hall in December 2012 before being given to the families who participated.
