The Kalwun Youth Wellbeing program supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children on an identified need basis.

Our program aims to build on positive change, strengthen relationships with families and support networks as well as improve life skills and choices.

We support young people through a combination of case management, mentoring and group activities. All work is person-centred and designed to meet the needs of children and young people.

Kalwun Youth Wellbeing program is proud to be a part of the Street Cred program; Street Collaborate, Re-engage, Empower and Deter (C.R.E.D). The initiative combines stakeholders from the QPS, Cross Cultural Liaison Unit, Gold Coast Entertainment Precinct Group, Department of Child Safety, Department of Youth Justice, representatives from the Gold Coast Youth Service and a G:link representative to maintain positive relationships with young people who have been identified as ‘at risk’ of engaging in antisocial behaviours or criminal activities. Together we all work toward encouraging young people to re-engage with family, culture, community, education and employment.

Eligibility

Kalwun’s Youth Wellbeing program works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people aged 10 to 17 living within families who are at risk of entering, or already in contact with, the Youth Justice system and Child Safety.
