Panyappi program

 

Overview

The Panyappi program is a mentoring program specifically for Indigenous young people aged 10-18 living in the Adelaide area. The program aims to reduce the incidence of high risk behaviours and criminal acts. The project aims to break the cycle of negative behaviours and provide support and opportunities for the young Indigenous people whereby self-esteem, identity and a sense of direction in life are developed and monitored by appointed mentors. The project is based on culturally appropriate protocols which allow the young people to connect with Indigenous lines of respect to Elders. The project has been evaluated both nationally and internationally.
