ABOUT

In 2023, Probu Dedleewun ran during Terms 2 and 3, offering a comprehensive 8-week vocational education program specifically designed for young individuals aged 15-18. Our mission was to equip participants with pivotal employability skills, boost well-being, impart invaluable life skills, and foster confidence and resilience.

At the core of Probu Dedleewun was an educational journey allowing young people to delve into the realms of engineering and manufacturing. A highlight for many was the opportunity to construct their very own electric scooters, a testament to their hard work and dedication, which they took home with pride.

The program was multifaceted, covering a spectrum of essential training and experiences. Participants had the opportunity to earn First Aid and White Card qualifications, gearing them up with skills for their future endeavors. Additionally, they were exposed to on-country camp experiences that nurtured personal growth and a connection to Country.

Probu Dedleewun provided all-round support from a team of qualified teachers, Apprentice Master, and devoted youth workers. This dedicated team rendered pastoral care tailored to our participants’ needs, guiding and aiding them every step of the way.

Probu Dedleewun was more than just a program; it was a meld of vocational education, on-country bonding, personal growth, and tangible engineering experiences.

We proudly concluded our term and look forward to what the future holds.
