The Northern Beaches Business Education Network Inc., now renamed in 2022 as Youth Up Front, celebrates its 30th year in 2023. Residents may be familiar with the annual Careers Expo, the Work Placement Program for both Employers and Youth or even participate in the annual Golf Day fundraiser, but did you know Youth Up Front have also been running a Canine Assisted Learning Program?
The name change recognises what is at the core of this organisation - putting young peoples needs first.
Youth Up Front is a registered Australian charity that helps young people transition from adolescence to adulthood. Youth Up Front have inspired more than 100,000 students over more than two decades.
Youth Up Front improves the lives of children by providing outreach and vocational programmes, mentoring, case worker and personal development support.
This Issue we share an overview for our Youth and their Parents - and for all who want to invest in this charity so it is sustained into the future, whether by donation, exhibiting at the Careers Expo, or getting involved in the Work Placement Program or any of the activities on offer.
Food Spring Strawberries
Ahh, the bliss of early Spring, when a young man’s fancy turns to love and a young lady’s to….strawberries!
Dipped in chocolate…
Or in a soufflé…
Or just piled high on a dinner plate!
As the first Spring varieties are arriving in our grocers, ridding of us of out-of-season mid-Winter expense, it is time to indulge your love of these mouthfuls of crimson fruit.

DIY Ideas Spring School Holidays 2022: Handmade Toys - For Youngsters + Oldsters Who Want To Lend A Hand
With the Spring School Holidays 2022 upon us, and a few rain days forecast over the next fortnight, we thought a few ideas on how to make some toys to have fun with may appeal. As firm devotees of making 'stuff' with leftover cardboard boxes, ice-cream sticks and even matchboxes when they were around, we can assure you there's nothing better than getting some 'bits of wood' together to build something brilliant with. There are also a LOT more ideas on how to do this than there were when we were youngsters, as well as heaps of resources to find plans and older ideas when you do an online search. We like the Adventure in a Box website, which is loaded with great handmade toy ideas as well as other craft activities for youngsters. A few ideas on what you can make this School Holidays when it's too wet to be outdoors.
