About three and a half hours north of Alice Springs, some 20 kilometres to the east off the Stuart Highway in the NT, lies the community of Alekarenge. Here, four mornings a week, about 20 to 30 zero to five year olds and their parents and carers attend a Families as First Teachers (FaFT) playgroup.
Our Foundation has been working with Families as First Teachers (FaFT) programs for a number of years. FaFT is an early learning and family support program for remote Indigenous families, whose aim is to support children's learning and development, by working with Indigenous families and children prior to school entry.
The ILF are now recruiting for a part time Marketing Assistant role (Identified). If you are interested in getting hands-on experience in marketing, with a particular focus on Social Media, we are looking for someone to assist 2 – 3 days per week, with the possibility of moving to a full-time role over time.
“(I was inspired by) my time spent in remote Indigenous communities, and the ambassadorship of singer-songwriter Josh Pyke. In addition, the desire for this event to serve something more important than just the release of my music”
