The Youth Involvement Council’s new coffee machine

Alinta Energy became the proud sponsor of the Youth Involvement Council’s (YIC) commercial coffee machine for their new facility in South Hedland. Jamie Rees (Plant Manager, Port Hedland) attended the youth centre’s opening to show support on behalf of Alinta Energy.

The YIC is the primary youth organisation in Hedland which organises and delivers programs to young people who are considered to be at risk, homeless (or at imminent risk of homelessness), disadvantaged or in need of general support. With the non-profit organisation continuing to expand, the YIC have just moved into a brand new facility which accommodates all of their services in one place in South Hedland.

As part of our commitment to support local grass roots community initiatives, Alinta Energy contributed to the move by sponsoring the YIC’s commercial coffee machine. Not only will the coffee machine provide an income for the council to support ongoing sustainability, it will also enable young people to gain real work experience and skills in the HQ coffee shop.
