CASSE is partnering with #IncarcerationNation to amplify the call for alternatives to youth detention. Join the national conversation by watching this Sunday night at 8.30pm on SBS Australia and hear from some of Australia’s leading experts and people who have spent time in prison about why prison doesn't rehabilitate or heal the youth who are storehoused there.

#ShieldsforLivingToolsforLife #culturalhealingcamps
#CASSECreatingASafeSupportiveEnvironment #NorthernTerritory #IndigenousLivesMatter #RaiseYourVoiceIndigenous youth aged 10-17 make up 55% of the youth prison population, yet are only 6% of the total youth population - meaning they are 21 times more likely than non-Indigenous youth to be incarcerated. Of children aged 10-14 in detention, 65% are Indigenous.

No child should be in prison. Sign the petition to #RaiseTheAge at buff.ly/3mciE9e and watch #IncarcerationNation this Sunday night at 8.30pm on SBS Australia.

Our annual dreams

To take 60-100 youth per year on cultural healing Shields For Living,Tools for Life camps to make traditional tools every year.

To hold day cultural healing camps for the town at-risk youth a day a week at our Desert Knowledge site.

To be in Youth Detention Alice Springs one day a week to deliver traditional tool making.

What we deliver

Through our programs and resources we create spaces for intercultural exchange and understanding.
CASSE respectfully acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the lands on which we meet and work.

CULTURAL CAMPS AND TRADITIONAL TOOL MAKING

The Men’s Tjilirra Movement has partnered CASSE with Aboriginal communities in Haasts Bluff (Ikuntji), Mt Liebig (Amunturrngu), Kintore (Walungurru), Papunya (Warumpi) and Kiwirrkurra in Australia’s central western desert region. CASSE’s ‘Shields for Living, Tools for Life’ program delivers cultural camps for high-risk youth in Alice Springs at Desert Knowledge Australia, Willowra, Santa Teresa, Snow Bore, Titjikala, Tempe Downs, Lajamanu, Finke, Mutitjulu and Imanpa.
