Yikes kids picked for mural


YIKES! Youth & Kids Involved in Enterprising Skills - Going Places! We are not confined to the four walls of our venues. We explore our region and get involved with community initiatives. This philosophy has bought interesting benefits to us as a programme. Two Yikes kids were chosen to be on an inner city mural depicting the next generation in Nelson. Our director Tania was approached to choose the kids. (Images top right). Article Click Here

We put our hand up as a viable communtiy group to be considered for a "pay it forward" initiative by local business Roadhogs Indoor minigolf. Out of hundreds of businesses that applied we were chosen and now own Roadhogs Indoor minigolf.
