In 2011, BYS implemented the mobile outreach bus. The aim of this program is to support young people when they are most vulnerable. Byron Bay is a hub for binge drinking, vandalism and violence. Street Cruise hires trained youth workers to assist young people.
The incredibly generous donations from Suffolk Park Bakery, Eagle Boys, Byron Bay Captured & Earth & Sea Pizza allow youth workers to provide a safe, calm place where young people can refuel, relax & have a chat. Providing such a space is fundamental to reducing risks associated with youth drinking. A direct means of contact is provided between young people, police, bouncers, business owners & licensees along with the general public. This has significantly improved the wellbeing of young people in our community and greatly reduced the incidence of vandalism and violence.
