Expressions of Interest – Iwara Program

Applications close October 30, 2020

This program is only open to young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from the NPY Region.

Iwara is a partnership with AFL NT, Softball NT, TAFE SA and CDU that will offer qualifications in Community Services and Sport & Recreation at completion.  Iwara participants will be mentored by an Anangu Employment Officer (AEPO) from the NPYWC Youth Service throughout their journey.  The AEPO will also work with the trainees at the end of the program to identify ongoing work with youth programs and agencies across Central Australia.

Iwara is a 7 month program that will include three months of immersion into softball and football; trainees will learn foundational work skills related to these sports before heading back to communities and implementing their new abilities and key learnings.

This is a paid position and we encourage young Indigenous community members to apply.  Further details can be found on our News page here.
