UPCOMING EVENTS AND FUNDRAISERS
The Whitelion calendar of events plays an important role in raising much needed funds that directly benefit the young people at risk we work with. From our national fundraising event, the award-winning Whitelion Bail Out, to the AFL Finals Series Luncheon - there's an event to appeal to all audiences.
The aim is to reach the summit of Mt Bogong, Mt Kosciuszko & Mt Tennent in just 33 hours over 2 days. The climb offers the opportunity for person fulfilment through a physical and mental challenge, all the while raising vital funds.
The Bail Out is Whitelion’s national fundraising and awareness campaign. Bail Out provides a unique opportunity to step into the shoes of a young person that has been disconnected from our community due to abuse and neglect, drug addiction and poverty.
The annual AFL Series Luncheon celebrates the year that was for all supporters whilst providing a different atmosphere for corporates to connect and get involved with the Whitelion group.
The event is a glamorous afternoon of delicious savories, sweets, and refreshments at Melbourne's home of High Tea, The Langham Hotel. We are excited to welcome media personality, Meshel Laurie, to speak on the day! Hosted on the International Day of The Girl, Leading The Pride is all about empowering our young women to be all they want to be!
Unpacking The Youth Justice System - Detention & Rehabilitation: What's The Right Balance?
Youth justice issues always make headlines with supposed ‘African gangs crisis’, riots in youth detention centres and allegations of mistreatment of detainees across the country. Yet rarely does the public get the chance to question the system itself.
Our youth justice system currently offers both detention and rehabilitation elements – the question is whether the balance is right.
Modelled on ABC TV’s Q&A program, the inaugural Whitelion’s youth justice Q&A is set to dive deep, raise the level of understanding and discussion in the community, and possibly even find better solutions.
Moderated by legendary crime writer John Silvester, the event includes a keynote speech by Professor James Ogloff and esteemed panellists from government, academia and community organisations across Victoria.
Join us for what promises to be a compelling, likely entertaining and definitely thought-provoking evening.
