The first  Australian Youth Development Index (YDI)  launched  late last week has revealed young  Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men  between the ages of 25 and 29 suffer a suicide rate  higher than any other  country in  the world.

A new  program which  empowers  young Aboriginal   girls to be strong confident and happy within  themselves... is set to roll out in 3 Alice Springs schools this year.

Mature age Aboriginal people are being offered the  opportunity to  develop literacy and numeracy skills with  a local  based registered training organisation.
