Shaping Our Fate

Throughout 2018, Somali Australian young people from the Banyule region have been involved in an exciting project, funded by the VicHealth Bright Futures grants, called ‘Shaping Our Fate’.

A range of tech and media based programs and events have been run, in which young people have had the opportunity to increase their skills, try out new things and develop pathways for employment and further education.  As well as this, the young people have made new social connections, discussed wellbeing and mental health needs for their community and been supported to create amazing outcomes for themselves and their local community.
