Koori Communications and Training develops and evaluates programs for Indigenous people.
Koori Communications and Training is a groundbreaking indigenous owned and operated small business consultancy.
We develop interesting, engaging, culturally sympathetic and thoroughly researched programs for Indigenous people.
We provide programs that focus on re-integrating participants back into the broader community in a positive and supportive way.
The programs teach the participants identified skills, include a follow up strategy to encourage participation and negotiation within the broader community. We also focus on using qualified Indigenous workers where possible to provide positive indigenous role models.
Our services also include a communication's arm which promotes more positive images of Indigenous people and can specifically promote the programs.
We also address some of the specific challenges faced by young Australians. Our programs promote improvements in health and fitness, encourage school retention- leading to increased numeracy and literacy levels, to reconnect with their culture and community and provide a safe haven. They are designed to improve the self esteem and confidence of participants by encouraging a relationship based on respect and mutual responsibility.
Some of the engaging programs that Koori Communications deliver include;
Racing to the Top(TM) is a program that teaches participants the mechanical principles of a 2-Stroke engine via the building of a remote control race car. Our research has confirmed that 85% of indigenous youth and youth at risk who participate in this program remain within the school system.
Catch N Cook(TM) teaches participants about fishing. It also teaches about sustainable fishing methods, legalities surrounding fish sizes and bag limits, sound environmental practices and the traditional uses of sea-tucker found on the 10 locations shoreline. Participants also learn the responsibility of maintaining their fishing gear. As a reward for their learning and attendance during the program, Participants get to keep their fishing gear.
