Worked with Martu Aboriginal Youth who where secondary homeless and often neglected and malnourished. Created program's and activities for after school hours for ages 10-19 which included sport, art, health programs and cultural activities. Woke, drove and fed twelve high school youth to school every day along with lunches and provided shoes/socks etc. As part of there cultural studies we engaged in hunting trips and bush camping, sometimes for days. Engaged the youth of Newman in sports such as football, softball, soccer and also arts including music making and community painting. Most amazing two years involved with the YMCA and very appreciative of the experience. Now back from Australia hoping to work with youth, the community and also possibly returning to dental practices as well as admin and reception duties. Nicola Durkan

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) - Newman WA
Working at the YMCA for my second two weeks of workplace learning was very productive to me because I get to answered a few phone calls within a day and have to also keep a correct record information down and send the email. I'm not only doing administrative role I also have to look after the kids during the day to. I have to be very active because I have to be able to handle the children and always have to keep an eye on them for their safety so they doesn't get hurt.
