I feel very privileged to work with the young people in the CDU Aspire Program and one of the annual highlights of the program is producing a video sharing their experiences volunteering in the community.

This video shows the senior secondary students from around the NT volunteering in their local communities in Alice Springs, Katherine, Nhulunbuy, Palmerston, Yirrkala and Yulara. In 2016 students volunteered at the Uluru Camel Cup and Surf Life Saving Australia, as well as a number of other charitable and local organisations. It was launched as part of National Student Volunteer Week.

This program is a brilliant initiative and I am so glad to be involved as a content creator and meanest/workshop facilitator for the young people involved.
