Youth Workers at Red Cross

Youth Workers at Red Cross

Categories: Employment, Training, School, Wurrumiyanga

Alan Kerinaiua and Samson Mungatopi work for the Red Cross Youth Program, and they are halfway through their Certificate II in Community Services. The Youth Program provides after school activities for 50-60 kids on the oval from 2:30 to 4:30pm.

Alan has been a Youth Team Leader for two years now, running activities for kids like footy, basketball and cricket, and talking to kids about respecting and encouraging each other. He says, to get a job all you have to do is finish school and let people know you’re looking for work.

Samson’s focus is the Save a Mate Our Way campaign, helping to steer kids away from drugs and alcohol. Sampson says, “Just don’t hesitate. Go and ask and they’ll give you a job, or do the jobseeker thing.” That’s how he met his partner and landed his job at Red Cross.
