More About Our Company
Youth Engagement - Our youth programs are focused around empowering youth to be the leaders of tomorrow.
Cultural Transmission - Elders believe if we are to create healthy communities, we need to connect our young people back to their culture and be proud of who they are.
Responsible use of Media - Using media to engage young people and help keep their culture strong.
Over the last 10 years through our work we have noticed a direct link between the cultural health of a community, and the social and emotional health of the young people.
A sense of belonging and a connection to place is very important for young people. Our programs use media to connect youth and elders promoting cultural transmission, positive role models and strengthening self worth. Visit our Services page for more information.
At the Rare Earth Foundation we have integrated a new way of thinking to organisational sustainability. Using a corporate model for sustainability, we have moved away from the traditional charitable model that relies heavily on government funding, to social enterprise. And in late 2011, Rare Earth Oils was created.
Rare Earth Oils works with Aboriginal elders, youth and family groups to hand-harvest essential oils from the wild to create a range of natural, Australian, ethically produced products.Read More
