The Jaru Pirrjirdi program works with young adults in the Yuendumu community to address the underlying causes of petrol sniffing. The program is part of the umbrella Mt Theo program, run by Warlpiri Youth Development Aboriginal Corporation. The aim of the program is to help develop a strong, skilled and dedicated group of young leaders for Yuendumu, by working with young adults (aged 17 - 30 years) to address the underlying issues of substance abuse. The program is now used as a model for other remote communities in the Northern Territory.
