Here at YouthAdvance – Australia we pride ourselves on not just providing a tick box approach. Our mission is to provide opportunities to young Australian which will challenge and reward them via active engagement through personal pursuits and community-based projects. We do this by providing a safe framework that takes our Participants outside their comfort zone and from structured mentoring and encouragement our end goal is they are equipped for work and life, That’s why we’ve partnered with Red Earth Connections as are Residential Partner who share the same vision.
Red Earth Connections is an organisation that gives young people the opportunity to make a meaningful connection to remote Indigenous Australia. They do this by organising Immersion Programs to remote communities and homelands where traditional Aboriginal culture still lives strong. During the immersion, students work on projects chosen by Traditional Owners and learn about the rich culture of the land directly from Elders of the local area. Students are welcomed by traditional clans and families on private lands that have been locked away for decades and that are not accessible outside of this setting.
