Junior AECG

The Problem

Young indigenous kids
- dropping out of school
- not staying engaged with what they are being taught
- feeling like that there are no opportunities and they don't have a voice

The Solution

Provides a forum where young indigenous in the school can share what is important to them and it is then passed on to the school staff through their elected representative.
Held in a classroom on a Tuesday afternoon. The representative tells them what has happened with the latest request and facilitates discussion on their needs.
One thing it was able to achieve is a change the school rule about a culturally significant garden near the school being out of bounds. A petition got over 100 signatures of indigenous and non indigenous and the school changed the rule.
