What to expect 

YACVic Rural is hosting "Getting Ahead" facilitator training with Nairn Walker, which builds on the concepts of Bridges out of Poverty, supporting young people & the youth sector across the Mallee, developing skills to address concerns and break patterns around health, education, employability, disability, parenting and integrating cultures across the community.

It is a MUST for education, youth and community services providers!

The prerequisite for prospective Getting Ahead Facilitators is completion of Day 1 & 2 of the Bridges Out of Poverty workshop. This event is proudly supported by The Empower Youth Initiative.
