Ngalla Maya provides education, pre-employment training, mentoring and employment support to Aboriginal ex-offenders, their families, and the wider Indigenous community. We are dedicated to creating positive and meaningful change and opportunities for our First Nations People.
Mentoring is delivered through a culturally positive, supportive and learning relationship which encourages others to develop skills, knowledge and understanding for personal growth. Mentoring can be done formally or informally and will often change and evolve as the needs of the mentee change.
We link our clients to a whole range of training including traineeships, white cards and forklift certificates. If you are Aboriginal and an ex-offender or have been unemployed long-term, speak to our team today. We offer transport to and from our Belmont office and daily lunch for anyone attending our training.
Undertaking short-term training, long-term training or education which leads to qualifications will set you up for life and improve your wellbeing and that of your family. Ngalla Maya is here to support you throughout your journey.
Once you have achieved formal qualifications, Ngalla Maya will support you in your journey to gainful employment. We have positive relationships with many employers who are ready to get you started in your desired career path.
If you are an employer who can assist with providing employment opportunities, please contact our team.
Ngalla Maya supports children from disadvantaged families by providing respite from the challenges of their everyday lives. We go back to the bush where we participate in cultural activities, have a yarn and provide lots of fun for all.
Ngalla Maya would like to provide a safe, cost-free learning environment for young Aboriginal people experiencing disadvantage who wish to get their learner’s permit. Obtaining their licence will ultimately open other opportunities including employment prospects. This program is currently looking for funding, please contact us if you can assist.
