CLASSIC arcade games are back at Frankston Council’s Youth Services hangout at Playne St thanks to the installation of six machines built by Envision Employment Services’ Work for the Dole participants.
Retro games of the 1980s including Space Invaders and Pac-Man can now be played and enjoyed by young visitors to the hangout next to Frankston Library. Envision Employment Services’ Gina Hatzopoulos said it took participants, led by “dynamic duo” Joe and Garryck six months to build the machines.
“The Envision staff and participants have been able to produce some beautifully crafted and decorated units, designed to amuse, entertain and engage local youth.
“This is a great example of a community project that benefits local jobseekers, young people and the wider community.”
Envision Employment Services is a Seaford-based not-for-profit organisation that helps disadvantaged and disabled people find work through job placements and projects. See frankston.vic.gov.au for details of Frankston Youth Services activities and locations.
