Cultural connection for at-risk youth
Our Youth CONNECT team values and understands the importance of connecting young people with their culture.
With 42% of the cohort identifying as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients, we are committed to creating opportunities to learn and connect.
As part of our commitment - the team, clients and their children, attended Ngutana-Lui, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Studies Centre located on Yuggera and Jagera Country. Ngutana-Lui means ‘to teach’. Leading our learning journey was Eric, an Elder who shared teachings about traditional ways of living.
One client commented that she loved the day and loved introducing her daughter to places and experiences like this. A safe space, where her daughter will be able to grow up knowing her culture.
