The Point blank Magazine project was funded by Bendigo Bank Laverton. It commenced as a young leaders program and has developed over time into a youth magazine; a place where youth could openly share their thoughts, feelings and opinions of their world with the first edition being published in November 2014.
The content is designed to be fun and entertaining, in addition being insightful. Too often we tell youth what they should and should not be doing, we disregard their opinions and lack of life knowledge, and we demand they follow our lead. Leadership is about direction and guidance, not authority and pressure. It is about supporting others to unlock their potential and raise their own personal standards. That is the philosophy we have adopted for this project.
