Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group
17 January 2013 -
08 February 2013
One of our partners, Young and Well CRC are currently calling for expressions of interest from young Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, aged 12 to 25, to form a new all Indigenous advisory group.
The advisory group's role will be to ensure that Young and Well CRC research projects engage young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in meaningful ways by advising and collaborating with project teams to understand and improve the mental health and wellbeing of young Indigenous Australians.
If you identify as being Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and would like to volunteer a few hours per month either online or on the phone please register your interest by completing the online form, or by contacting Kris Gesling, Youth Participation and Technology Officer, Young and Well CRC on firstname.lastname@example.org or calling on 0401 438 789.
Nominations close on Friday the 8th of February 2013.
