Grant aids ability to provide for local youth

The Commonwealth Bank grant was part of the 2015 Community Grants program that provides 200 grants to community groups totalling $2 million.

Dungeon addresses the needs of young people in Ballajura, supporting their development and wellbeing by empowering them to reassert control over their own lives.

The recreational and educational programs engage youth in positive participation, helping alleviate disadvantage and poverty, and providing alternative learning opportunities.

The grant will be used to support the Achieve Project, which engages young people aged 12-17 years old each week in workshops and activities to develop life and social skills.

The program empowers them with knowledge about health and social issues so they can avoid high-risk behaviour and make positive life choices.
