On Country Program

The primary aim of the Jabalbina On Country Healing Camps is to engage and awaken the cultural and spiritual awareness of the roles and responsibilities each Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander child and youth inherently possess within them, and is a fundamental part of building a healthy cultural society.

  • Promote pro-social behaviour
  • Improved and sustained school attendance, employment and training opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths
  • Stronger connections with family and community
  • Stronger cultural connectedness and identity as a proud Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander young person
  • Improved mental health and wellbeing
  • To reposition young people as proud cultural people, with a purpose to contribute positively to their local community and mainstream society.
  • Participate in experiences of self-discovery and learning within a culturally safe environment.

Young people will feel valued, listened to and feel a sense of love and kindness as core components of a compassionate response to often complex social and
historical of intergenerational trauma, loss of spirit and self identity.

  • Strengthen self-identity, mind, body and spirit
  • Belong to tribal groupings, clan, skin groups and totems
  • Connect to family, culture and country
  • Engage positively with family, community and society
