The program’s main attraction is an Urban Walk that gives students an interactive and hands-on experience exploring the social justice issues faced in the Kings Cross/Darlinghurst area. We also offer a small number of 2-day City Experience Retreats which includes training and the opportunity for students work in Rough Edges.
The Rough Edges Community Centre has been operating for over a decade. In that time we have grown in our understanding of the complex needs and issues of an area like Kings Cross. The themes and questions explored in the Urban Exposure Programarise from the context of the work of Rough Edges, where love and community is lived out.
We really value sharing our ideas and stories with young people and make a sincere effort to ensure that what we talk about is relevant to their lives.
