Maitland Garden Village Green Light Project
The goal of our project was to help the Green Light Project (GLP), a community-based organisation in Maitland Garden Village (MGV), address social challenges including idle youth, unemployment, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy. We sought to accomplish this by establishing a good working relationship with GLP members, utilising the current assets of the organisation and the MGV community, and making new relationships with various stakeholders. We were able to analyse possible venues for a prospective Help Centre facility, construct a resource book on community-based organisation sustainability, secure a temporary venue for existing GLP programmes, develop a youth music programme, and set up a system that gives GLP members the opportunity to develop proposals for future projects.
