Carbal’s Miyay Youth Program is a transformative experience that unfolds over 10 weeks.

Our mission is to foster self-determination and motivation among Australian First Nations Jarjums (youth) girls as they navigate the path to adulthood.

Carbal’s Miyay Youth program is conducted once a week and spans over a duration 10 weeks. This unique initiative is specifically designed to nurture self-determination and motivation among emerging Australian First Nations jarjums (youth) girls.

‘Freshwater Turtle Story’

This artwork designed by Colin Jones depicts the life force of the rain forest. Here, once again, you have the women collecting the food source from the rainforest and when you see little hands within the painting structure, it’s a signature, it says:

“we belong to this land or we belong to this place”
