Almost $50, 000 for Adelaide to celebrate young Muslim Australians
Member for Adelaide Kate Ellis today announced Federal Government funding for a project to build the skills and education of local young Muslim Australians.
"The Dulwich Centre Foundation will receive $49,500 under the National Action Plan to Build on Social Cohesion, Harmony and Security," she said.
"The project will train local youth workers, teachers and community workers to run workshops that focus on young Muslim Australians' own skills and knowledge in responding to challenges."
A series of workshops and interviews will record stories from young Muslim Australians that will be documented and distributed through a written publication, website and DVD.
"The Australian Government is committed to ensuring all young Australians have the opportunity to realise their full potential," Ms Ellis said.
