Workshops in order of participant preference:
Mandurah T1 had strong financial support from WA Police and logistical support from Lifting Horizons. The contributions from these organisations were crucial to getting the program started in Mandurah.
There was also strong support on the ground from local youth service, Streetnet, and from the family of local youth worker, Jessica Vati. Her family provided home cooked food on most evenings and made up half of the volunteers on any given night. Their support and enthusiasm was a key to the success of the tournament.
