Manly Warringah Sea Eagles celebrated Youth Week 2022 with the announcement of an exciting new community partnership with Youth Up Front.
Youth Up Front is a registered Australian charity that helps young people transition from adolescence to adulthood, inspiring over 100,000 students over more than 25 years.
Based on the Northern Beaches and formerly known as The BEN (Business Education Network), Youth Up Front officially unveiled their new name and logo at an event held within the new Sea Eagles Centre of Excellence during Youth Week 2022.
The community partnership between Youth Up Front and the Sea Eagles was also announced at this event, which was complimented by Youth Up Front being the official Match Day Partner of the Sea Eagles Round 6 NRL home game win over the Gold Coast Titans.
