A proudly Tasmanian owned and operated company, Contact Group, is passionate about giving back to the Tasmanian community and supporting local charities and community organisations.

This month Contact Group’s Managing Director, Wade Fromberg, caught up with Will Smith from JCP Youth, to discuss ways to support his important work with Tasmania’s at-risk and disadvantaged youth.

Mr Smith is a former police officer and Tasmanian Young Australian of the Year (2020), who founded the organisation, JCP Youth, after recognising a gap in services and support for young people.

His highly motivated team works with youth from all over the state and is dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk and vulnerable young people through the delivery of high impact programs.

From leadership seminars in schools, to intensive youth development camps, JCP is having a remarkable impact on young Tasmanians, assisting them to be the best version of themselves.

Primarily self-funded, JCP relies on donations to keep up with demand for its services, in particular the youth development camps, which are run every school holiday for young people aged 11 to 17.

Contact Group is now proud to support JCP’s youth development camps, meaning a troubled young person who is referred to the program, can attend free of charge.

Contact sees this as a valuable way of supporting some of Tasmania’s most vulnerable young people.
