Meet Geri Martin - Youth Officer

Kaya! I have worked with Indigenous youth for over 18 years, supporting them in determining a moorditj pathway to self-reliance and empowerment.


I have seen many youth overcome challenges and barriers that lead to strong social and economic participation.


Contact me to discuss what level of connections and support you could access as part of the Aboriginal Youth Empowerment Project.
