School Holiday Program, Tamworth
Communities for Communities has partnered with the Tamworth Local Aboriginal Lands' Council (TLALC) to support their school holiday program aimed at 'at-risk' Indigenous youth. The TLALC is a very well respected and recognised organisation within rural NSW and has been working with the Tamworth community for the last decade to help break the cyclical challenges in the community. The school holiday program has a focus on culture, health and general wellbeing, and provides these children with activities and network of people to support their ongoing development.
From October 2018, C4C is running local immersions to give volunteers the opportunity to participate in the program, using their various skills to make a tangible and long-lasting impact on Indigenous youth in the Tamworth area.
