About the Program
LAUNCH Night Series is a free City of Darwin program open to young people aged between 12 -17 years who reside in the Darwin area. In addition to competitive basketball games, players enjoy art activities, a meal with their teammates and transport home (within the Darwin municipality) if required.
LAUNCH Night Series is held on Saturday nights in four week blocks, four times a year. The program is guided by a committee of community volunteers and is supported and managed by City of Darwin. LAUNCH Night Series aims to:
- Provide young people with a safe, healthy and positive environment on Saturday nights when they may be vulnerable to harmful and anti-social behaviour
- Support young people to connect with and participate in positive activities in their local community
- Provide healthy role models and build positive self-regard in young people
- Divert young people in areas of need from the risks associated with unhealthy behaviours
LAUNCH Night Series is supported by a team of dedicated volunteers, to register your interest contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
