The Gugan Gulwan Youth Aboriginal Corporation Street Beat Program is a night outreach program that is aimed at targeting Under 18's to reduce young people appearing within the justice system, binge drinking rates in the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and to promote Sexual & Reproductive Health and Smoking Cessation.

The program operates two nights a week rotating over Thursday/Friday/Saturday nights for 4-6hr patrols during the hours of 5.30pm-3am.

 

The program youth workers then provide through care to the Team Leader, ensuring appropriate diversionary interventions are put into place to deter clients from continuing to make poor choices in relation to their behaviour.

For more information about this program please call Selina Walker on 02 62968900.
