Aboriginal Youth Connections is established on the Central Coast and Hunter Region. It offers Aboriginal programs to engage and connect youth, provide cultural training and work skills, improve education outcomes and turn them into jobs. Through its Aboriginal tours program, it seeks to educate Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people about local Aboriginal history and heritage. It also seeks to create employment and training opportunities for Aboriginal youth through enabling them to participate in business in a meaningful way, while maintaining cultural heritage and caring for country. Gavi Duncan (descendant of William Bird or “Little Breeches”) is Indigenous cultural advisor.
