Place-based approaches are locally developed solutions to complex problems that are unique to the place they operate. How can we learn from successful place-based approaches and begin to think about implementing them in our own place?
In this webinar, you will hear from Bernie Shakeshaft, (2020 Australian of the Year, Local Hero and CEO of BackTrack Youth Works). Bernie discusses the development of the BackTrack Youth Works program, what makes it so successful and how other regions can learn from the work the program undertakes with young people.
Lana Masterson from Down the Track shares how she has developed a youth program based on BackTrack’s principles in Central West NSW.
You will also hear some insights from Zac, a young person from the program who will talk about his experience. He’s now studying to become a youth worker.
