Hearts and Minds
We’re hiring young Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Blak, Black, Brown & People of Colour for a project on mental health & wellbeing!
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people who are the traditional owners and custodians of this land. We recognise their continuing connection to land, water and culture. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
We are looking for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and/or Blak, Black, Brown and People of Colour (POC) young people to work on a project centering on mental health and wellbeing in our libraries.
We are looking for young people to help us create welcoming spaces and disrupt the idea of what a library is by exploring the question: how can libraries support youth mental health and wellbeing?
You can embrace the wild, the wacky, the quiet or the loud, making the environment one that speaks truth to the youth.
And you will be paid for your contribution to the project!
What exactly is this project?
We don’t know! We want you to tell us and help us co-design it.
We will give you the freedom, tools, guidance, support (and money!) to make it what you want.
The nitty gritty
We are looking for 13-17 year old Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and/or Blak, Black, Brown and People of Colour (PoC), who can commit to 8 meetings over Term 3 and 4 2022.
To participate you must be available on Mondays from 11 July to 10 October, 4.30–6.30pm.
Your application can be submitted either as a written form or a video upload, so you can put your best foot forward!
Applications have now closed.
This project is supported by Libraries and Youth Services at City of Yarra and City of Darebin.
