Why Jason is a Clubhouse Ambassador:
The partnership with YWCA Canberra to instigate the Clubhouse was inspired by our shared vision to re-engage youth in learning. It provided a sound model for mentoring, exposure to high-end information and communication technologies and an opportunity for young people to work positively and collaboratively with others. The Clubhouse has unlimited potential and a bright future in providing a valuable community resource for those who need it the most.
