Echuca-Moama Youth Expo: Bridging the Gap 2019 was announced on Monday.

One thousand secondary students from five local schools are set to converge on Echuca College Gym on September 11, with the goal of improving their well-being, education and training.

Forty-eight local exhibitors will attend the day, including services from youth, health, sporting and community groups.

Coordinator Ashlee Collins said the event was a great opportunity for students to connect with their community.

“This Youth Expo is very beneficial for secondary students as it gives them an opportunity to explore all the youth, health and wellbeing services available to them,” she said.

“Throughout the day we will be entertained by music students from all the schools as an opportunity to show off their musical talents. The music acts will be run by our music teachers from all schools.”

The expo will also include an art exhibition display, where students from all five schools will have the chance to display their artwork.

The event runs from 9.30am–2.30pm, with students split up by their year level to explore the exhibits for 60 minutes each.
