Funded by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ), Bungree’s Youth Frontier Program (YFP) provides a mentoring service for Aboriginal young people aged 10 to 17 years who are at risk or in the juvenile justice system.
The program aims to engage young people’s strengths by building skills and experience, addressing barriers to participation, reducing contact with the justice system and improving life outcomes through mentoring support, positive learning and social engagement activities.
As well as individual mentoring services, Bungree’s YFP also conducts a Resilience Program in schools and in the community, with yearly cultural camps for participants of both the Mentoring and Resilience Programs.
The Youth Frontier Program is available to Aboriginal young people aged 10 to 17 years who are at risk or in the juvenile justice system. The service area covers the Central Coast region.
