About Tjindu STRONG
The Tjindu STRONG program has been developed for Aboriginal students in remote communities.
This program encouragers students to develop and tap into their mental, physical, emotional and cultural strength through making smart choices in life supported by guided discussion.
Tjindu Foundation staff use real life experiences to connect with students and engage on core program curriculum.
Unique to Tjindu STRONG is the delivery of cultural identity programs where students are enabled to express who they are, where they come from and to share their identity.
Our purpose of this program is in the name: Strength, Trust, Respect, No Shame, Optimism and Gratitude. These are the values and structures that Tjindu STRONG is centred on.
