Beacuse you care

We developed the free Because You Care online leaning module for foster carers, as there are very few specific resources for carers around sexual health and relationships available.

But!!

The online learning module content is still relevant to a much wider audience such as youth workers, community services, teachers, & parents or anyone connected with young people & interested in sexual health, relationships or trauma informed practice.

You can access the training in the following places:

If you think of someone who may find the training useful please share this email.

Outdoor Leadership Trainee Program

Land’s Edge Foundation is a local not-for-profit outdoor education provider and we have recently opened applications for our 2022 Certificate III Outdoor Leadership Trainee Program, beginning late March.   

We would love the opportunity to engage some of the young people of the area through your services.

Please note, although our external promotion states that the traineeship is open to persons 18 years & older, we have had fantastic success in the past when taking on school leavers aged 17.

Agent C program – Workshops tackling fake news, misinformation and conspiracy theories

Three worksops have been put together for delivery online (via Zoom) throughout April and May for young people aged 14-21, examining the rise of racist/hateful fake news, misinformation and conspiracy theories and how that intersects with things like power and privilege.

The workshops will provide young people with the skills and tools to be able to identify fake news and conspiracy theories and enable them to have conversations with their peers and take meaningful action.

As well as gaining important and relevant skills young people will also receive a $60 Westfields voucher for attending the workshops.

This project is funded by Multicultural NSW and led by All Together Now in partnership with Headspace Camperdown.

Workshops are open to young people throughout all of NSW.
