NMAC’s Prison to Community Reintegration program and At-Risk Reinstatement program offer Indigenous ex-offenders and people in the court system a constructive life path through education, pre-employment training, mentoring and employment support.

The programs provide activities that support individuals in achieving their qualifications and gainful employment; ultimately providing positive and meaningful change and breaking the offending cycle for themselves and for future generations. The program is made up of the following curriculum:

1. SKILLS EDUCATION & TRAINING

Skills education and training provide all the necessary skills to support accessible employment opportunities. Training supports the participant’s confidence and lays the foundation for employment success.

2. PRE-EMPLOYMENT TRAINING

Pre-employment training offers candidates the knowledge to identify transferable skills and start building their resumes. It also provides candidates with presentation and interview skills to aid their confidence when they receive a job interview.

3. MENTORING

Our team works intensively with each person to deliver individualised mentoring through a culturally positive learning relationship and encourage candidates to develop skills, knowledge, and understanding for personal growth.

4. EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT

Participants are encouraged to make choices on their employment placement. We have positive relationships with many employers who are ready to get them started in their desired career path. Ngalla Maya provides ongoing support so the participant meets the necessary successes for work environments.

If you are Aboriginal and an ex-offender released from incarceration from July 2021 onwards, or are in the court system but not yet sentenced and not yet in scope for prison, get in touch with our team today to see if you are eligible for the program.
