The Wuu-ri ("gift") Project

"Your generosity will ensure that help for disadvantaged youths will continue in Moree. Please help our cause and make a difference! "

 

At NYEC, we provide an Education Mentoring Program as a pathway to Distance Education or TAFE/VET courses for young people who are disconnected from mainstream schools. 

You can give the gift of education to an Indigenous teen by donating to help them get closer to their dreams!

Our Success Story

REBECCA

An indigenous teen who had not been at school for up to 8 years. She was supported through Cert 1 and Cert 2 courses at TAFE and has gone on to begin a Cert 3 in business.

About The Program

At NYEC, we provide an Education Mentoring Program as a pathway for young people who are culturally and relationally disconnected from mainstream schools.

We engage these students with one-one-one support 12-15 hours per week to target vital literacy and numeracy skills and empower them to succeed in Distance Education or TAFE/VET courses.​

Students are consistently referred to NYEC from PCYC, trauma and youth services, and the Education Department. There is no funding available for this service, so these kids need a regular helping hand to participate.​

Please note, the Education Mentoring Program entails a potentially high-turnover as at-risk students enter the program and others reintegrate into main-stream schools, or other training and employment.
