Regional CALD Youth Leadership and Participation ProgramThe Regional CALD Youth Leadership and Participation Program was delivered in the greater Bendigo area in partnership with Bendigo Community Health Services in the period April 2011 to November 2011. The program engaged approximately 30 young people from diverse faith and cultural backgrounds in a series of skill building and leadership development exercises culminating in the organisation and delivery of a youth-driven recreational camp. The program assisted participants to develop their leadership, communication, decision-making and problem-solving skills; establish links with local employment and education sectors; and build positive relationships with people across ethnic, linguistic and religious differences.
Youth & Media Mentoring Project
The Youth & Media Mentoring Project, ‘Working Title’, was delivered in the metro Melbourne area in partnership with Channel 31 in the period May 2011 to October 2011. The initiative provided mentoring, skills development and technical support and training to eight young people (age 19 to 25) from diverse faith, cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The initiative developed participants’ practical skills in relation to various elements of the production of professional-quality programming (e.g. front-of-camera, script-writing, editing, logistics, equipment management, etc.); and enhanced their understanding and appreciation of the experiences, backgrounds, interests and priorities of other young people from diverse backgrounds.
This initiative resulted in the production of a 30 minute television program, aired by Channel 31 on 23 October 2011, which consisted of two documentaries created by the project participants and interviews with the individual young people.
