Young Aboriginal leaders smash stereotypes and share what works.

Keen to keep kids out of “lock up” and engaged in healthy lifestyles, education, training and employment, a group of young Aboriginal men take action.

The four young men featured in the video- Beau, Trei, Michael and Karl have been accessing Weave’s Kool Kids Club program for a number of years and are passionate about expanding the health and fitness program they initiated so that more disadvantaged kids can have access to a better life.

These young men are outraged about the disparity in health, life expectancy, incarceration and education rates between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians and they have decided enough is enough and it’s time to change this.

The JOURNEY 

Kool Kids were lucky enough to have direction and support from Vanessa Edwige (Weave) and Vinnie from short black films to make a short film about cultural identity. This project was lucky enough to be funded through the Healing Foundation and Clovelly Bendigo Bank.   

The kids loved the process of making a short film and getting to work with all the fantastic people from the La Perouse community that came on board to help.

It was also great to see the kids going home and asking questions about their mob and their community. 

A big thank you also to Ronald for playing the role of the uncle in the film, To Elders Yvonne Simms and Norma Simms and to Marcia Ella-Duncan for letting us use her family name
