BDQ Partners with Youturn Youth Support

We're excited to announce we have signed an ongoing, collaborative partnership with Youturn Youth Support.

This unique partnership is just one of the ways Building Design Queensland is supporting our members to create better built communities.

How will this partnership benefit us?
As our first-ever Community Partner, the relationship will provide an opportunity for Building Design Queensland to directly support a community activity, increasing awareness of both our selected partner and the work, skills and capabilities of our members.

About Youturn
Youturn Youth Support is a not-for-profit that was started 30 years ago to help address youth homelessness in the Noosa region.

Since then, they have grown substantially and now work across Queensland with young people and those that support them, with a focus on three core focus areas - Child Safety, Homelessness and Mental Health.

What will this partnership look like?
Youturn will position BDQ members as their preferred of supplier of building project advice.
Youturn runs a variety of building projects throughout the year - we'll be forming Member Advisory Panels (MAPs) for each project, filled with volunteer members who are willing to provide pro-bono advice in their area of expertise on the project.
This gives our members a great chance to get involved in a small project for a great cause, no matter where they are in the state. It's an opportunity to connect with other members, work on a project you might not otherwise work on and give back to your community.

Being involved in these projects across the state will give BDQ and the profession of Building Design positive visibility within these communities.

We'll be sending out more information on our Member Advisory Panels soon, including our very first MAP opportunitiy!
