Cunnamulla Aboriginal Corporation for Health (CACH)
Cunnamulla Aboriginal Corporation for Health (CACH) is a health centre based in South Western Queensland. It aims to promote, maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of the local community through a range of programs and services.
The CACH Murri Network has developed a ‘Young Elders and Future Elders’ program. This program allows the future leadership and skill development of the younger generation. It is an important strategy to engage younger people in their community. And to ensure the transfer of knowledge from Elders onto the younger generation.
The program selects 2 senior students who have been identified by their peers and school staff as having similar qualities and leadership abilities of current Elders. The role of these ‘Future Elders’ is to work closely with members of the CACH Murri Network. They also act as advocates and a voice for young people.
The CACH Murri Network encourages, develops and nurtures the younger generation. They mentor and support young people to strengthen their skills and aspirations to become future leaders of Cunnamulla.
