Street Surfer Bus

Friday, 19 May 2017

Wednesday 17th May saw the launch of BCYF”S Street Surfer Bus in partnership with Adroit Insurance Group, Geelong Community Foundation and the Geelong Cats.

The Street Surfer Bus has had a significant presence in the community since 2010, under founding agency Barwon Youth. However, it required a fresh look and a sustainable service model to ensure it can continue to make a contribution to the community across the Barwon region.

BCYF welcomed the generous support of Adroit Insurance Group and the Geelong Community Foundation to upgrade the interior, exterior and replenish equipment on the Street Surfer Bus, making it a more inclusive and appealing community resource to a broader audience.  Over 70 young people aged between 6-25 years across the Geelong region were consulted about the design of the internal and external upgrade and related activities.

The Street Surfer Bus will increase it’s presence at regional events including attending all 2017 Geelong Cats home games, increasing the Cat’s engagement with children and young people.

If you would like to book the bus for an event or program, send an email to streetsurfer@bcyf.org.au or speak to Laura Johnsey on 03 5226 8600 for more information.
