First Nations Youth

Helping First Nations youth reach their potential through cultural life & leadership skills

Disadvantage and vulnerability are preventing many Australian First Nations children and youth from reaching their full potential. Implemented in schools for First Nations children and youth aged 10-20, participants have opportunities to build stronger connections to their culture and grow leadership and life skills so they can become the next generation of change makers.


In urban areas, First Nations youth are overrepresented in indicators pointing to high levels of vulnerability and disconnection. More than 1/3 do not finish year 12 and they make up more than half of all young people in youth detention. Without a strong understanding and connection to their identity, they enter adulthood ill equipped and often find themselves in negative generational cycles.


Give First Nations young people access to culturally strong education and connection that empowers them to reshape their future and pave the way towards real and lasting change. The program supports the shift away from service delivery in the First Nations community towards a focus on community development.
