Project Booyah’ is an established 20-week early-intervention program for disadvantaged young people developed by the Queensland Police Service (QPS).
Built on an evidence-based framework, the program incorporates adventure based learning, social development, skills training, mentoring, case work, literacy/numeracy education and vocational qualifications.
Participants engage in attaining a Certificate Level I or II qualification and trade skills that will assist them in their pathway to employment. Participants are also supported through the program by caseworkers, with a strong emphasis on addressing causal factors associated with participants’ disengagement and/or behavioural issues.
Participants attend a structured three-day outdoor educational camp focused on team-building and leadership exercises that is intended to enhance self-confidence and build knowledge sharing between peers.
Project Booyah is funded under a grant from the Australian Government.
