2011-2013 Mens Groups – Aboriginal men with supporting organisations, established a local Mens Group to support Aboriginal Youth (e.g. cultural education and leadership camps “on-country” for Aboriginal male youth, supported young (male and female) children entering school by providing positive cultural educational experiences, located employment opportunities for older youths and prepared them for employment. Both Police and Citizens Associations and the local Rotarians remained in the background, facilitating, encouraging, and offering expertise when it is absent amongst the Group and the wider local Aboriginal Community. They also help with gaining sponsorship support when the community was not able to provide from within their own resource base.
