Over the last six months, the team at Lighthouse has been working with boutique Adelaide production company, Run Wild Productions, on a project we are super excited to finally share with you.
The team at Run Wild have hit the road with the LYP crew to capture what we do, and how our work helps disadvantaged youth build on opportunities for a better future for themselves.
They've joined us at Cycle of Change; at Concrete Sessions; they've interviewed some of the past and present kids we work with; our mentors who ride and engage with these kids, from all walks of life, who are part of our programs. And of course Jamie and Ryan have chatted extensively with the film crew about what lead them to found Lighthouse Youth Projects in the first place and the vision for the future. This video captures the essence of who we are, collectively, at Lighthouse Youth Projects and why we do this work.
Sharing where we've come from and what we hope to achieve has really solidified for us how the nature of what we do can affect positive change in communities around us.
We are so excited to share the results and launched both the video and our new look website for our stakeholders at an event on Sunday November 25 at the rooftop of The Unley to a great response.

Over the past few weeks, it's been awesome to see the bikes that were generously donated in our 2019 Drive to Ride make their way through another life cycle and hit the road again.
Not only is it great to see these steeds avoid hard rubbish, our little bit towards helping to reduce our impact on the world, but it’s been a ripper opportunity to teach kids at our Concrete Sessions tips and tricks to bike maintenance and repair!
The bike photographed was a cracker of an MTB generously donated, and we were happy to see it rolling again last week. We can't thank enough the donors who were willing to give their old mountain bikes a fresh spin with new riders.
Everyone at LYP is still buzzing after the big March fundraiser at the [360 Allstars](http://www.onyx-productions.com/360allstars/) show at Gluttony for the Adelaide Fringe.
Not only were we able to treat a group of very excited and deserving kids the opportunity to see behind the scenes at the incredible 360 Allstars show and meet pro bmx flatland rider Peter Sore, but a percentage of ticket sales on the night have also been donated to Lighthouse, which we are so stoked and grateful for. Every bit of support we receive gives us more opportunity to help local kids in need!
If you missed the show but still want to [donate](https://lighthouseyp.org/donate) towards LYP, we are always happy to accept donations, however big or small!
We are so psyched to be able to share with you guys that this Thursday, March 14 at 6:30pm, 360 Allstars will be donating a percentage of every ticket sold for their incredible Adelaide Fringe show, to Lighthouse Youth Projects!
The show is a supercharged urban circus featuring basketball, breakdancing, beatboxing, acrobatics, drumming... and the 2 x World Champion BMX Flatlander!
We would be so thrilled if you would please come and support us and the show, bring as many friends as you are able, and be sure to select "LIGHTHOUSE FUNDRAISER" when booking your tickets online or at the box office.
As an added bonus, the guys from 360 all stars are gifting tickets to the show to some special kids that we work with, kids who would not otherwise get an opportunity to be treated to a night out like this, and we are so appreciative of this incredibly generous support of what we do here at Lighthouse.
The more people we can get along to see the show this Thursday night, the more money donated to LYP, which in turn, gives us the opportunity to help more kids!
Hope to see you there! Spread the word, tag as many mates as you can in this post, and share with as many people as you can!
