Kiwirrkurra took on the cat walk with precision in December 2016. The Kiwirrkurra youth program received an incredible amount of support from people and businesses donating the latest fashions. The program is part of the NPYWC.
The NPYWC Youth Program works across the organisation’s tri-state region, albeit at different levels in WA, SA and the NT. Services comprise diversionary activities, school holiday programs, individual case management and substance abuse and mental health awareness programs. It’s approach is more than just a ‘sport and rec’ model. NPYWC’s youth services began with the Petrol Sniffing Project (PSP) at the Kaltjiti (Fregon) SA Community in 1999, funded by the Australian Government. NPYWC’s members have always had an enduring and passionate interest in seeking better lives for their young people. Since the beginnings, there has always been a strong focus on the isues of substance misuse, and education.
“Women’s Council is always thinking about young people and their futures. We worry about kids getting a good education and having things to do so they don’t get bored… The NPY Youth Team works very hard to support young people in our communities.”
Margaret Smith, NPYWC Chairwoman.
