The Indigenous Recreation Program aims to introduce young indigenous people (aged 11 – 16) to a variety of leisure activities available in the Perth Metropolitan area, providing them with the knowledge and skills to access them and to develop friendships and support networks.
A bus service is available for the participants in this program in selected suburbs.
Session times are Thursday afternoons 4pm – 5.30pm.
Eventually, these programs will run across four afternoons (Mondays to Thursdays) in four parks covering four suburbs. The aim of this program is to increase the participation of young CaLD and Indigenous people in sport and active recreation. We aim to do this by running grassroots programs within the local community, engaging clubs and state sporting associations to increase participation and link young people to local clubs through the KidSport Scheme.
