Do you know of a young indigenous person, aged between 12-19 living in the target areas of Manoora, Manunda, Mooroobool, Westcourt and Woree in the western district of Cairns, who is 'at risk' or is frequently in trouble with the law? Or are you from an agency with responsibility for youth deemed to be 'at risk?'.
Nintiringanyi Cultural Training Centre offers a program which helps to divert young people away from adverse contact with the criminal justice system by offering sporting, recreational, culturally appropriate and motivational activities that will have a positive impact on the lives of ‘at risk’ youth.
The West Cairns Indigenous Youth Justice Program provides a vast range of activities which range from: holiday programs, holiday camps, after school programs, Youth Life Skills programs to motivational teaching sessions.
We work with a team of Youth Motivators who are committed to mentoring ‘at risk’ youth instilling in them positive moral values and lifestyle choices. We also establish career paths for youth, assisting them to identify goals, devise a resume and refer them to employers.
