The Skill Engineer Ltd, a non-profit organisation focused on engaging individuals in economic, social and civic activity, has welcomed the Albanese Labor Government’s announcement of $360,000 in funding for the Nyanga Walang – To Give and Learn Project.
The program aims to support First Nations youth to connect to Country and culture, access support to navigate the transition to high school, and build a strong sense of identity and purpose. The program also aims to empower young people to create a positive impact on their communities.
Maggie MacFie, CEO of the Skill Engineer Ltd, expressed her gratitude for the funding and the importance of building the capacity of First Nations youth.
“It is an honor for us to deliver this project and to have the opportunity to help young First Nations people connect with their culture and country,” said MacFie. “We are grateful for the funding and we welcome the opportunity to create a world where young individuals are appreciated and encouraged to achieve their full potential.”
During the funding announcement, Minister Rishworth MP and Dr. Gordon Reid MP had the opportunity to hear directly from young people about the positive impact of Unlocked, a Skill Engineer program designed to support young people who have experienced difficulty re-engaging with education and training after the COVID-19 lockdown.
The Skill Engineer Ltd looks forward to working with the government and community partners to support young First Nations people and make a difference in their lives.
