Mount Isa’s Booyah boys have been working hard on the holidays to complete their hospitality training.
Booyah is a police initiative which helps steer Isa teens away from crime and onto a more positive path.
The cohort put their training to the test this week when they made dozens of milkshakes for kids attending vacation care at the PCYC.
Central Queensland University hospitality trainer Janey Scott also helped the teens complete their responsible service of alcohol training.
“The training they have been doing transfers into real life skills,” Mrs Scott said.
“Having an RSA is a requirement if they want to get a job in places where alcohol is served, whether they are a barman, a ‘glassie’ or a security guard, it is good basic training.
“We have also been talking about not getting into a car if your mate has been drinking, how to control their own drinking and how one punch can kill,” she said.
“We are helping these young people get their lives back on track and we actually see them change throughout the program.”
