IYSP

Inala Wangarra, in partnership with the Institute of Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH) and the University of Queensland,once again delivered a  fantastic week long Indigenous Youth Sports Program. The program was attended by 130 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students aged between 10 and 17 years and 100 community and health workers from Inala, Ipswich, Logan and Morayfield. The program, based at UQ gives these students an opportunity to be exposed to university life and provides lectures on identity, leadership, culture, traditional dance and career pathways. 2014 was the programs fourth year running and so far has seen 15 people from Inala alone go onto tertiary studies.
