Whitelion works with young people who are at risk and disconnected from the community due to abuse and neglect, drug addiction and poverty. These young people have often had horrific life experiences with few positive role models and little family support. If the ‘cycle of discouragement’ is not broken, some young people become habitual offenders in our community and spend the majority of their young lives behind bars.
Whitelion opens doors to opportunities, relationships and community for these young people. It gives them the chance to ‘break the cycle’ through role modeling, mentoring, employment and indigenous programs, outreach services, and prevention programs run in rural and metropolitan schools in disadvantaged communities.
