Parent Youth Empowerment

MADALAH welcomes their very first Youth Empowerment Program, Boordiya Yorga & Moorditj Maamans! As this program is facilitated and organised by MADALAH please note that we will be inviting local Noongar Elders along with external facilitators to share their journey to empower and inspire our future leaders!

We would love to include every scholar in our program however spots are limited and because of that, the program will involve a selection process. We, the MADALAH Team, will always encourage scholars to continue applying for future MADALAH events and programs if on this occasion the scholar is unsuccessful.

Please note that consent to attend the MADALAH Youth Empowerment Program is included in the 2023 – 2024 MADALAH Secondary Scholarship Grant Agreement that all families have recently been provided for signing. This includes, not only permission to attend, but for MADALAH to take and use photographs/video and for the scholar’s full name to be shared in conjunction with any photographs/video taken.

Please refer to the Scholarship Grant Agreement for full details about consent and expectations. If you have not signed and returned the MADALAH Secondary Scholarship Grant Agreement, this may lead to the scholar not being able to participate in the program.

Please also note, that if successful, MADALAH will organise for scholars to attend the weekly sessions via the Indigenous Program Coordinator at their school. This will include transport to and from the sessions, particularly if the scholar is a boarder. If the scholar is a day student and separate travel is required, MADALAH will organise with the Parent/Guardian.

Please confirm your consent below for the scholar to submit their application, and if successful, participate in the program.
