Hayden and Reynolds PROJECT

When we first stated our program, the suicide rate amongst our community was 4 times the Australian national average. Many of the children were under 15. Attendance at the indigenous College was 9 children, 30 pct. of the time. 1 person under the age of 25 had a job on the islands with a population of 2500.

We’ve been there 10 years. An independent group of people trying to add value and saving children’s lives. On these Islands we now employ 12 staff and student numbers have gone from 9 to 124 with an attendance of over 85 pct. We’ve never asked for a dollar of government money. We just offered hope. So we took this model nationally. It is this:

  • The students spend 2 days at secondary school in their last 2 years to graduation.
  • Alongside secondary school, we enrol them in MARINE College for a day a week to teach them life and nautical/engineering skills.
  • We then source employers and WE PAY the student’s salary for 2 full years under their employer.
  • This allows employers and students to form a relationship prior to graduation in to the workforce.
  • There is no cost to the student or employer, but they are getting to know each other

Our students graduating at the end of 2018 have a guarantee of 100 pct. employment. We have 32 beautiful boys and girls, all first nations, all brimming with new hope. All employed on the Oceans and Rivers of the Country of their people. We couldn’t be prouder.
