Australians are the first to contribute when disaster strikes. However, there is a perception that there is no disadvantage in Australia. Sadly, many young people find themselves in circumstances arising from challenging backgrounds (marriage breakdowns, family violence, financial difficulties, parental involvement in crime or drug-taking, ADHD, learning difficulties, social adjustment problems).
Our programs provide Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) solutions. School principals, school counsellors, and senior staff from other community organisations refer young people to us before they get onto 'the wrong track in life'. Our programs provide participants with an understanding of Community Values, ensure that they are aware of their Responsibilities as part of Community, and provide Life Skills that allow them to become engaged, contributing members of their Communities.

The smiles and positive values we bring into young people's lives are what keeps us motivated.
Prevention is better than Cure!
