New Vixen V/Line Ambassador
Wednesday, 23 November 2011
Speedy Melbourne Vixen, Madison Browne has been named the new ambassador for the 2012 V/Line Life Training program.
The program provides sessions on drugs, alcohol and binge drinking, depression and mental health awareness and body image and self-esteem, targeted at young people and their families. Next year, a new session on bullying will also be included in the program.
Browne is delighted to be involved in the program saying it "sends out powerful messages to the youth of today".
"I think the sessions really help young and guide young people to make positive and responsible decisions. I love inspiring and talking to young people, being a role model to some and sharing my experiences and the things Ive learnt. So to have the opportunity to work with V/Line and this program is something I am very excited about," Browne says.
Applications to host a V/Line Life Training session during 2012 are now open. Each session runs for 2 hours and is targeted at 14-18 year olds and their families although everyone is welcome to attend. Sessions also include a workshop with Leading Teams who will lead the group through a selection of Life Skills activities.
With only a limited number of V/Line Life Training sessions to be held in 2012, the sessions will be allocated to those groups which display the greatest level of support to the program. Groups that were unsuccessful in 2011 will need to submit a new application if they are still interested in hosting in 2012.
There is no cost to organisation for the session, all hosts need to provide are the venue, refreshments and ensure that the right people go along to the session.
Applications close on Friday 2 December and successful hosts will be contacted early in the new year to confirm the details of their session. If, in the meantime, you require any further information please email email@example.com.
