Connecting Young People to Education
Level Up supports young people 10-15 years of age who are known to the Cairns Youth Justice Service Centre and have been disengaged from education, training, or employment. DIYDG ensure young people are connected in educational and meaningful activities within our local community to foster the diverse ways of learning. Level Up's primary focus is to support young people to return to mainstream education or alternative learning providers.
Where young people are not suitable to return, Level Up have developed a range of lesson plans tailoring to the needs of each young person, with the aim of empowering exploration of future career paths. Young people will have the opportunity to develop their literacy and numeracy skills through music with our team from Naytive Mentorship.
Young people will explore their connection to culture through a range of activities facilitated by our team at Kunjur First Nations Men's Collective. The team will connect young people with elders who are keen to share their knowledge of country, culture and community.
Dr Tyson Yunkaporta's 8ways is expressed as eight interconnected pedagogies that encompass Aboriginal ways of learning.
DIYDG have created activities which draw on each of the learning styles to provide young people greater opportunity to view education and employment in a framework they will understand.
DIYDG aims to connect young people with positive role models, develop a sense of identity, build resilience and develop their sense of identity.
