For Parents and Carers – Covid 19

Dear parents, carers and to everyone who attends Young Life Club,

Out of care and concern for the Australian community, we’d like you to know, Young Life Australia is aware of the latest advice about COVID-19 and is committed to acting responsibly.

We are asking you to help us in line with the advice given by the Health Department.

From Monday, March 23, 2020 all Young Life Australia Clubs and gatherings are suspended until further notice.

Please keep in contact by following us on Facebook and Instagram.

Young Life Australia will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and act in step with Department of Education decisions and official advice from the relevant Health Departments.

Thank you for being involved in Young Life and for helping us as we take the necessary steps to protect the wider community this season.

We are committed to supporting young people and finding creative ways to keep in contact during the coming months.

Please contact myself or your Area Manager if you have any questions.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Stretton
