Grant delivers slam dunk for local youth
A NEW basketball program for at-risk youth in Grafton and South Grafton has received a $15,000 grant from the NSW Government.
Making the announcement today at the centre, the home of the new $5 million state-of-the-art PCYC announced last year, Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis was joined by the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Sarah Mitchell, excited local youth and members of the Rebound 2460 committee.
Mr Gulaptis said the Rebound 2460 program connects young people with local youth services, with the basketball tournament being the centrepiece of the program.
"This is a terrific grassroots driven program where each team is not only named after a particular support service, but the volunteer coach actually works in the service," Mr Gulaptis said.
