Celebrating 20 Years of Kool Kids
For 20 years, Weave’s Kool Kids Program has been building resilience from the ground up and giving children and young people opportunities to thrive.
Kool Kids works with children, young people and families who face complex social issues that are symptomatic of the impacts of systemic disadvantage and intergenerational trauma. 95% of the children and young people who are part of the Kool Kids Program are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and the program is grounded in holistic practice that supports Aboriginal people on their individual and collective healing journeys.
Through Kool Kids, children and young people engage in fun, skills-based activities that highlight their strengths, improve social and emotional wellbeing, foster respect and nurture resilience. For 20 years we have been fighting, advocating and doing everything we can to sustain and grow this program. Sadly, Kool Kids still does not have sustainable funding.
We need your help to keep Kool Kids going.
