Men’s Group Arts, Crafts and Youth Mentoring Program

The Men’s Group Arts, Crafts and Youth Mentoring Program otherwise known as the ‘Friday Men’s Group’ caters for Aboriginal men and male youth. It covers traditional arts and crafts and also provides mentoring and positive role modelling for young men. In recent years both the number of participants and the number of schools serviced has increased. Over the past two years five high schools (Kanahooka High, Lake Illawarra High, Albion Park High, Dapto High, Oak Flats High) and four primary schools (Mt Warrigal Public School, Koonawarra Public School, Lake South Public School, Barrack Heights Public School) have participated in the program.
