REFRESHMENTS, dance competitions and a safe environment will be some of the things provided to youth in the coming months thanks to grants presented by the Launceston City Council.
Cheques of up to $4000 were given yesterday to National JobLink, Fusion Australia and Cornerstone Youth Services to assist the organisations in their work.
All three organisations will promote Launceston's resources and work on creating a positive youth culture in the city with activities during the year.
Free refreshments and positive role models will appear at Royal Park's skate park every Friday with Fusion Australia representatives.
Royal Park will also be the venue for Cornerstone Youth Services' Youth in the Park, a chance to celebrate being a young person by listening to local music and attending workshops.
Lisa Amerikanos, of National JobLink, said it wouldn't be possible for the group to continue engaging migrants aged 16 to 24 in school holidays without the grant.
