Where we are up to

Plans are underway to expand the provision of the Korin Gamadjii Institute’s (KGI) cultural and leadership program to Aboriginal young women in custody. The program will run on Sundays over a period of six weeks. The aim of the program is to enhance the cultural support provided to young women in custody. Over the autumn school holidays, World Vision ran a culturally based leadership program with Aboriginal young women called 'Young Mob'. The program acknowledged the need for specific programs designed to meet the needs of Aboriginal young women in custody. Attendance was voluntary, and all of the young Aboriginal young women opted to participate at some point during the two week school break.
