FReeZa- Sonika

What is FReeZA?

FReeZA is a Victorian Government initiative that supports young Victorians to get involved in their community by planning and running drug, smoke and alcohol free music and cultural events for other young people.

It gives young Victorians practical opportunities to extend their abilities, develop confidence and leadership skills, as well as see the range of talent on show for young people.

The FReeZA program allows young people to plan, stage and participate in a diverse range of artistic, cultural and recreational activities that are drug, alcohol and smoke free, in supervised and safe venues.

FReeZA aims to encourage interaction between young people and Government, improve the support services available to young people and create effective pathways to employment and training. FReeZA also recognises the importance of acknowledging the contributions made by young people to the community and of celebrating and showcasing youth.
