As usual, it's been an amazing week visiting the students within the Mudgee Community. It's a week that Howard looks forward to every year, being part of a tight and welcoming community!
We'd like to thank all of the students and teachers we worked with, as well as our sponsors: Club Mudgee, Midwest Regional Council and Moolarbencoal!
Also a big thanks to the Mudgee Guardian for their story which you can view in full at https://www.mudgeeguardian.com.au/story/5286104/setting-the-survivor-standard/
We're excited to announce that we have launched our official Instagram page!
After months of planning, and figuring out how to best engage with our young audience, we have entered the world of Instagram in the hope of providing our students and participants with on-going information, encouragement and dialogue.
Whilst we will most definitely be posting plenty of serious, finance related information, we'll also be having a lot of fun with travel tips, work spotlights and life advice from students and other community members.
We'd love you to join us, so if you're on Instagram check us out on @survivorlifeskills
On the eve of our annual week in Mudgee, we would like to thank a brand new sponsor for 2018: Moolarbencoal.
We're thankful to have an organisation like Moolarbencoal appreciate the importance and relevance of the Survivor Life Skills program. Along with Club Mudgee and Midwest Regional Council, Moolarbencoal is supporting our program as we bring it to students in the regional area of Mudgee.
Moolarbencoal does some fantastic work within their community, and we look forward to working with them in the future!

The Australian Governments report Australia's Welfare 2017 is an annual report that covers different issues within different population groups.
Over the past week there has been much discussion within the media regarding two of these particular issues: the changing trends in workforce participation, and the changing trends in house ownership. You can view the full report at https://www.aihw.gov.au/reports/australias-welfare/australias-welfare-2017/data
We work with young people every single day, and are well aware of how these trends can affect youth on a personal level. We're proud to be able to offer a service that addresses these issues. Our employment modules, within the Survivor program, help equip students for entering an ever changing workforce, preparing the best resume, and performing well in interviews. Of course, our budgeting modules are designed to help students develop good budgeting habits from an early age, which certainly has a large impact on entering the property market.
Reports such as this continue to highlight, year-in-year-out, that Australian Youth must be provided with services that address personal financial literacy as this can affect so many areas of an individuals life.
Visiting regional and rural areas of Australia is obviously a different under-taking to visiting our local, inner-city students. Our annual visit to Mudgee takes plenty of planning, organisation and, of course, community support! In that regard, we are thankful to once again have the support of the Midwest Regional Council who offer us annual support for their community.
We'd like to thank Midwest Regional Council for their continued support of the Survivor program, and all of the great work they do within their community.

It's March again, which means that Howard will once again be visiting the beautiful NSW town of Mudgee to deliver the Survivor Life Skills Program to students in rural NSW. As in previous years, the program is supported by one of our returning sponsors Club Mudgee!
Since inception, it's been important that our programs are available not just to inner-city students, but also to the youth in rural areas of Australia. Club Mudgee has been supporting us in this regard for many years now.
For more information on the club, or to find out about the great work they do within the community, please visit their webpage at https://www.clubmudgee.com.au
