'Girls Night In' is an evening that explores the theme of Self-Love for young women aged 12-21 (trans women welcome). Through movies, games, discussions and plenty of laughs we delve into the issues of body love, self-esteem, media literacy (detox your Instagram feed!) and more. We will look at how we, as women, can respond individually and collectively to a culture that force feeds us ‘impossible to attain’ bodies as the norm. Join the body positive movement!
Oh yeah, did we mention there will be free pizza?!

Bello Youth Hub
The HUBs Instagram is BACK!
As visual content becomes more and more prominent in social media, we see it as a fun and creative way of connecting with our community. Todays youth are well versed in social media platforms, and the Bellingen community has a wonderful voice on Instagram. We feel it’s a great way to engage, interact with and share HUB life.
Don’t forget to follow us @bello_youth_hub and tag us if you have any great photos of the HUB, HUB life, or events run through the HUB.
Young musicians: Bello Winter Music festival's Youth Mentorship program entries are closing soon.

The Bello 2017 Youth Week Skate Trip mob!
Our stunning Two Way Street program is still looking for young people who would like to gain logbook hours in the new school term!
Experienced drivers are available to join young people as they gain much-needed logbook hours, giving the family a handy break from teaching them the ways of the car.
If this sounds great to you, tell any young person you know that might need it! We have so many fantastic volunteers available on this program.
IMPORTANT UPDATE for our Youth Day Skate Trip: the event has been moved to 11th April. If you are interested, sign up now!
