Youth Space

Herve-and-Ron-ParkerOur guest speaker on December 2 was Ron Parker, co- founder of Youth Space in South Australia.

Ron spent many years in various government agencies developing youth programs, particularly those providing an alternative to detention for juvenile offenders.

After leaving the public service Ron decided to establish his own education facility for young people who did not fit into mainstream school communities, but who needed a place to develop their skills. He also believed while many were not academically gifted , and others had difficulty with conventional teaching methods, it was essential that all young people achieved a good level of literacy and numeracy while they were engaging in activities which were of interest to them.
