Where we are up to

The Korin Gamadji Program is now complete.

Aboriginal Youth Justice (AYJ) engaged Strong Brother, Strong Sister to deliver a mentoring program to young people in Parkville and Malmsbury that was due to commence in 2021. Due to staff relocation, the program could no longer be facilitated and is not being delivered.

Noting that numbers of Aboriginal young women in custody decreased, averaging one or two young people, AYJ are undertaking a procurement process to provide cultural programs for Aboriginal young people (both young men and women) who are in custody in Parkville and Malmsbury. This process has not yet been completed.
