WORK EXPERIENCE

ADELAIDE HILLS VOCATIONAL COLLEGE

Adelaide Hills Vocational College is an off-site campus of Mount Barker High School and was developed to engage young people from the Adelaide Hills, in South Australia, who are either at risk of disengaging from school or who have already disengaged. The College offers young people the chance to complete their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) using adult learning principles in a flexible learning environment. Wherever possible the learning has a direct correlation to career options or future pathways and ensures that young people develop a sense of belonging to their community.

Their partnership with Groovin The Moo continues to give young people in the Hills the opportunity to gain a range of positive outcomes and experiences. Each year they create artwork that is displayed within the event that locals to their talent. Their volunteering focus has also seen young people volunteer at GTM in a range of roles. This allows them to become part of the community and gain insight into possible future career pathways.

LOCAL ARTIST INVOLVEMENT

POSTCARDS OF WELCOME

When people travel, often they send postcards back home to let loved ones know they are thinking of them. Living Arts are working with young people from diverse backgrounds from Life Without Barriers, these young people may be under guardianship of the minister, come from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and/or live with a disability. Through a four-hour workshop program participants will be invited to share what helps them feel welcome and how they wish others to feel welcome. They will create gigantic postcards that will greet patrons on arrival at the front gate. The project will share the voices of young people who are often identified as ‘other’.
