Youth Based Program
Our Youth Based program combines three key programs including; Health & Well-Being, Raypirri Rom and Yol\u Seasons programs are is delivered with a focus on bringing Yol\u cultural knowledge to the forefront of minds of Yol\u youth.
Across the three programs we draw on the Yol\u philosophy of interconnectedness. With a birds eye view, we cater to each area of our youths' lives teaching them about gurrutu (kinship), wanga (land), manikay (song) and bunggul (dance), different seasons and how they are part of Yol\u life as well as traditional medicine and healing methods.
The Youth Based Program interweaves the following foundations;
Social: inter-clan relationships, marriage protocols, caring for people who may have sickness, mental health issues or a disability.
