Youth Services Officer

Tangentyere Council Inc

Youth worker, driver, supervisor, activity coordinator at Tangentyere Youth Services. Working at Tangentyere I ran art workshops during school holidays, multimedia (video making and editing, internet). Together with other workers I facilitated acrobatics and sports activities. I also worked in the "Off the Street" program, together with The Gap Youth Center and various other services in Alice Springs, offering local youth the opportunity to engage in fun and safe night-time activities.

This job was a great opportunity for me because I could learn about the cultural and social differences between aboriginal youth in a town like Alice Springs and communities out bush.

Youth Development Support Officer

MacDonnell Shire

I have worked in a community, Amoonguna, as a youth worker, running a youth program with my teammates. In this job, my objective has always been to run a safe and fun program, support my co-workers, promote community development objectives and fulfill the policies and procedures of my employer. Part of my job was also to facilitate cultural programs and organize and direct bush trips and cultural trips. One of the projects I organized was two paintings (2.5x 1.4m.) in which the youth worked together with local artists from Amoonguna and Santa Teresa (Kathleen Kemarre Wallace, Roseanne Dixon, Patricia Ellis).

I also worked on several programs during school holidays in the following communities: Tjitjikala, Hermannsburg, Areyonga, Santa Teresa. My job in these communities was similar, with a focus on developing specific cultural projects, such as: facilitating and supporting artists and elders to work together with children and youth. I also helped create a new magazine for aboriginal youth as part of a project called "The Right Track". I worked as an illustrator and facilitating the art space for young people to express themselves. In three communities, we created a safe space for youth to express their opinion about health issues, and we created the health material together with them.
