Cultural Strengthening through the Arts
Funded by the Department of Justice our Cultural Strengthening through the Arts program will be starting up again in 2015!
We will be working together with young people to create artwork to display in a special NAIDOC week celebration!
Last year our participants learnt a hip hop routine, wrote their own song and made a video clip!
Deadly and Safe Driving (a learner driver program)
Having a licence is important so that you can access employment, health and education, and go out with your friends. The Deadly and Safe Driving program is for youth who want to get their licence. Deadly and Safe Driving is for young people aged 16 to 25 years, however contact us if you are older than 25 years for a modified program. Our volunteer drivers are carefully selected and paired to learner drivers who then gain valuable hours behind the wheel in our 'Alice Sloan Trust' car. Professional driving lessons are provided free to Aboriginal youth through the RACV Foundation.

Phillip Island Camp 2015
As part of Cultural Strengthening through the Arts we were lucky enough to take 15 young Indigenous people from Healesville and surrounding areas to Phillip Island Adventure Resort, during our stay we enjoyed activities such as rock-climbing, surfing, canoeing, surfing, bike riding and much more!
Education is important because it can lead to increased life opportunities. Please contact HICSA If you would like to know more about our education bursary to assist with school or education related expenses. An application can be for education fees, excusions, uniforms or equipment. There are guidelines and an eligibility criteria applies.
