Engaging Youth in Leonora and Laverton

In collaboration with Champion Ways, we recently ran Youth Engagement sessions in Leonora and Laverton. 

Champion Ways, developed by two-time Boxing World Champion, Lulu Hawton, and holistic therapist and mindset coach, Michelle Barron, is a wellbeing program that endeavours to support youth throughout Australia.  

The sessions integrated boxing, physical training and movement with mindset coaching workshops and mindfulness practices as a vehicle to engage and build stronger relationships. 

The sessions were delivered to the Leonora and Laverton communities as part of the Community Development Program (CDP) Trialling Pathways to Real Jobs Initiative. Our local teams in Leonora and Laverton are connecting with youth, creating networks, and supporting pathways to future employment.  

The holistic nature of the program creates a nurturing and secure environment for young people to work through complex emotions like anger, grief, anxiety, and depression. It equips them with the discipline and self-regulation skills necessary for boosting their confidence, self-awareness, and self-esteem.  

Within our CDP program, participants play an active role in contributing to their communities through a variety of meaningful activities and training initiatives. Specifically designed around the unique conditions in remote communities, our CDP program empowers participants to build skills and overcome barriers through their involvement in a diverse range of activities. 

Supported by the National Indigenous Australians Agency we deliver the CDP program throughout Leonora, Laverton, Menzies, Wiluna, Mt. Margaret, and Mulga Queen. Find out more.
