Project founder Steven Muir said this will provide more opportunities to grow the project and plan more activities.
"We’ve really struggled for people to participate on a regular basis so having the youth worker as a regular person will be a big benefit in terms of what we can do," he said.The project will receive $10,000 in funding from the city council for taking community action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and live more sustainably.
Muir said the funding has also helped with a new holiday programme starting this week from Monday to Friday.
It has 20 young people lined up for the programme already. It will include teaching maintenance skills, learning mountain biking and BMX riding skills, and a variety of day trips to adventure parks and biking tracks.
The programme is free except for a deposit that will be refunded once the week has concluded.
