Year 11 & 12 Youth Empowerment Program

Eagle EDGE Academy of Sport – Year 11 & 12 Incentive Reward Program.

This program was established to focus on engaging Year 11 & 12 students at the Cunnamulla State School to improve their school attendance and academic outcomes.

At the commencement of the school year students were given the challenge.

95% school attendance throughout the year.
Hand in all required school work on time.
Respect for teachers and elders.
Fundraise for the trip.
The students got to choose the destination.

TRIP TO EITHER FIJI, VANUATU, NEW ZEALAND
WHERE IS YOUR DREAM GETAWAY?

The Students chose Vanuatu as their destination. With a lot of hard work from Wayne and Jane Dillon, the students run raffles, carwash and numerious disco’s to raise dollars towards the trip.

A huge thanyou to NULON, as a major sponsor.

All thanking Cunnamulla Blue Light Committee and friends of Wayne and Jane Dillon and Eagle EDGE Solutions that contributed to help make the trip a reality.

Out of the students that committed to the program four students were eligible to go on the trip, for one young lady she will have to wait a little longer, due to a hic up with her passport.

2013 will see students again given a challenge to do well. It is amazing what young people can do when they have dreams and goals; and people to help them along the way to see their dreams becomes a reality.

The Outback Aviation Program

Eagle Edge Solution is seeking to develop an Outback Aviation Program for South-West Queensland for 2012- 2015. The need for such an aviation program has been expressed by individuals, property owners and professionals working within the industry. At present there are very limited aviation training facilities West of Toowoomba. The greatest need, however, is for Indigenous and disadvantaged rural youth and adults to gain skills and experience that will result in them gaining employment.

Eagle EDGE Solutions (EES) is therefore seeking support from government, non-government and philanthropic organisations who will partner with EES and enable this innovative aviation program become a reality.

Target Group:

Indigenous High School Age Students.
Indigenous Youth disengaged from School
Indigenous Adults who are unemployed.
Disadvantaged non Indigenous youth and adults from properties and small communities in South West Queensland.
