‘Coming of Age’ for Redcliffe Area Youth Space

By Tanayah Wakefield

Redcliffe Area Youth Space marked its 21st birthday during a celebration this morning at the location from which it has been changing lives since opening its doors in 2002.

The event was attended by local politicians, senior police officers, supporters, staff, young people and their families this morning. See the photo gallery at the end of the story

Like most 21st birthday parties there were speeches, a video showcasing a lifetime of highlights, tears of pride and a birthday cake.

There was also a surprise presentation to the person who has given 17 years of her life to the organisation, Executive Manager Amy-lee Mayes.

“It’s crazy to think the Redcliffe community and Youth Space have known each other for 21 years but it also feels like forever,” Amy-lee told the crowd.

She spoke about how technology and music had changed during that time and programs had evolved to suit the needs of young people.

Amy-lee also shared the challenges the organisation had faced including losing funding during the ‘Newman era’ and having to take control of its own destiny in establishing its own board and revenue streams.
