Community Projects

Youth Cultural Camps

In addition to the programs we run, we were able to access funding through the WA Primary Health Alliance and the City of Kwinana to deliver a Youth Cultural Camp as a pilot project in September 2022 for future initiatives. From this pilot project, we were granted additional funding through Alcoa Australia for two years’ worth of camps and funding through Lotterywest to deliver another camp in 2024 for students attending Gilmore College.

Previous camps have been held during the school holiday period targeting Aboriginal youth between 12-15 years old, providing culturally appropriate activities focusing on mental and physical health, living in community and harmony in order to develop a sense of wellbeing, belonging and enhanced self-esteem.

The aim of this program is to allow Aboriginal young people the opportunity to engage in cultural activities out on Country, transferring cultural knowledge and to connect with their culture and personal identity. The camp will foster a young person’s self-identity and confidence through culture, influencing positive behaviours and encouraging alternative pathways to successful futures, in order to develop strong Indigenous role models within our community.

The program was facilitated
