When I walk in the streets
of the Green Square hood
once where old factories
and warehouses stood
Fresh apartments, just 'cause they could

~ 'Green Square, What's Good?' by Green Square School students

Youth Unlocked collaborates with students, teachers and educational communities in Behavioural Intervention Centres and Juvenile Justice Centres to deepen encounters with poetry. In 2018, Youth Unlocked successfully delivered workshops in Shepherds Park Juvenile Justice Centre with support from Wagga Wagga Council and at Green Square Behavioural School with performances of the rap at MIRVAC’s Social Corner in inner Sydney.
