HERE WE GO AGAIN!
AUTUMN PROGRAM NOW OPEN
STOKED is a surf therapy program for young people aged between 15 – 25 years.
Our program aims to teach surfing as a coping strategy for mental health, connect young people to community, deliver education on mental health & wellbeing and provide exposure to the healing powers of the ocean.
This May we will provide two programs one in Warrnambool and one in Portland thanks to our Safer Communities Grant.
The education sessions are provided by qualified practitioners from a range of Brophy programs including headspace, DARE, Healthy Relationships as well as community leaders in the health and wellbeing field, whilst the surfing lessons are provided by our partner Go- Surf School Port Fairy.
The program would not be possible without our volunteer mentors from the local surfing community that supports our participants on a 1:1 basis.
