Stockland Update

 Youth Insearch and Stockland Corporation have partnered up to launch Project Empower – an intervention program aimed at reducing juvenile delinquency in Stockland Shopping Centres, with the trial run out of Stockland Traralgon Shopping Centre.

The purpose of Project Empower is to support young people aged 14-20 engaged in delinquent behaviour at the Centre by helping to address underlying causes of anti-social behaviour and removing the need for youth to act out in negative ways. This empowers the youth to change their negative behaviours and create a positive future.

Project Empower operates in an outreach format consisting of a Youth Insearch Community Coordinator based at the Centre one day per week, engaging participants in Youth Insearch weekend workshops and support groups, and the potential for the young people to join the Youth Insearch Leaders Training course.
