Envirocare Systems in the Community: Project Recycle

Envirocare Systems in the Community

Blog post on 23/06/2017 under

Envirocare Systems is committed to making a positive and meaningful contribution to the West Australian environment, society, and community.

Over the past 6 months, Envirocare Systems has sent two staff members to Neerigen Brook Primary School, to volunteer with the Hope2Day Project Recycle Program.  Project Recycle is a program that matches professionals with young children as mentors. Over the course of two school terms, various activities are carried out, such as rebuilding a BMX bike, and engineering straw bridges. 

Programs are run both in schools and in local community settings targeting young people aged 10-14 years. Young people are referred to the program by their teachers. Stripping down and rebuilding a bike teaches practical and mental skills, and enables young people to more effectively work through life’s challenges.

Project Recycle aims to

  • Connect at risk young people in the community with a targeted small group program designed to build resilience, self-confidence, and problem solving skills
  • Build positive engagement opportunities for young people
  • Develop skills around rebuilding bikes and bike mechanics
  • Provide meaningful mentor opportunities leading to lifelong relationships
  • Give young people a chance to help someone else who is also in need

So far the program has been immensely valuable to Mark and Dakota, who have grown as people over the last 6 months. To anyone looking to get involved with a charity, we recommend Project Recycle, and will be sending more staff there for future programs!

A key part of our commitment to the community is our charity program. Through the energetic support and kindness of our employees, we have built strong relationships with Australian charities such as Care Australia, and Bush Heritage Australia contributing throughout the year to help make a difference across Australia.
