In October the Jobs Australia Foundation’s, national Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (IYLP) found itself at the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence in Redfern.
During the week long stay the group began their day with early fitness sessions at the state of the art EORA Fitness Centre and scenic jogs along the streets of Redfern. Guest speakers Peter Dawson from the Recognise Campaign and Aunty Sheeren a local elder presented to the group as they continued their Certificate IV in Community Development. Another highlight of the week was the Tribal Warrior cruise on the harbour.
The next step of this journey will see participants back where it all started in Anglesea, Victoria in February 2014 to commence the second year of the program.
Have a look at the State/Territory teams here with pictures and bios of all the participants.
