After a decade of successful delivery to local girls and young women, we are seeking to strengthen and deepen our program from within the community. We are looking to the next generation of girls and young women in Halls Creek who can be inspired and educated through g-oz, leading to educational, vocational and employment outcomes. Countless conversations with community leaders and Aboriginal and Islander Education Officers (AIEO) make clear the fact that multigenerational role-modelling is already highly valued by the community, particularly women. Women in the community understand ‘shame’ and they want to help girls to overcome their fears by leading by example. They also comment on the importance of sustained intercommunal relationships, particularly because relationships with teachers are short-lived. We plan to launch a formal and bespoke training and mentoring program for young women in Halls Creek with school-aged mentors and adult trainees being recruited from Halls Creek District High School and within the local community. They will participate in a training program run by facilitators from g-oz and the Australian School of Performing Arts in areas of performing arts education, leadership and management. Student mentors will be given the skills and encouragement to competently lead younger students while trainees will receive a stipend allowance, travel to Melbourne for intensive training and learn tangible vocational skills that can lead to employment.
