Midnight Basketball is starting up in Wollongong again!

Midnight Basketball is a not for profit charity which gives high-risk youth aged 12-18 an opportunity to play basketball, participate in life-skills workshops, have dinner and a bus ride home on a Friday or Saturday night.

Midnight Basketball is a much needed initiative in Wollongong. However, the success of Midnight Basketball depends on the support of the local community – without the support of a managing committee, Midnight Basketball will not be possible.

Please find attached an outline of Midnight Basketball, available positions, and an application form. I would really appreciate it if this could be disseminated around your business/company.
