Miyay Youth Program commences group work or one-on-one support from ages 10 – 17.
Under exceptional circumstances, these age limitations can vary.
Culture is the link that binds us and defines our identity.
Sustaining connection to Country is high priority and will be explored through direct engagement with nature.
