Kadadjin Boodja Bidi - Caring for Self, Caring for Country Pathway (Training & Employment)

The Kadadjin Boodja Bidi (Caring for Self - Caring for Country) Pathway was established July 2021 to strengthen self-esteem, pride, and confidence for 15 Youth and 15 Elders, to support a foundation of empowerment that is aligned to meaningful training and sustainable employment on country.

 

Once the Youth and Elders are culturally empowered we will align the Elder or Youth to a training and/or employment package.
