Why does Stand Up work with Indigenous communities?
Stand Up partners with a number of Indigenous communities to run recreational and skills development programs. Our programs have a strong youth focus and include holiday programs and youth leadership programs. We also assist our partner communities with special projects when requested, and provide study and work experience opportunities.
We believe that creating long term, meaningful partnerships is the most effective way of facilitating change. We aim to empower our partner communities with the skills and networks needed to take action on their own behalf.
