The AYCC Solidarity Training is usually an in-person one-day training targeted at non-Indigenous young people (under 30 years of age) who are currently volunteering or wanting to volunteer with AYCC. The training has been written by Karrina Nolan from Original Power (https://www.originalpower.org.au/) and has been developed in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, but will be run by non-Indigenous people.

Due to our COVID19 context, we'll be delivering this Solidarity Training in multiple sessions - starting with this 2 hour workshop online covering:

  • What do we mean by solidarity? Where have we seen it working well? What might stop us from working as allies with others? And why would we embark on this journey anyway?
  • This session is about thinking about what drives us to want to work in solidarity, in particular with the First Nations peoples of the country.
  • This time together will set the scene for going deeper, thinking about the impacts of colonisation on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and some of the contemporary challenges and issues.
  • This session will also support you to think about what you might need to make your solidarity work to be deeper, effective and long lasting.

This is an essential opportunity to develop core solidarity skills, and to learn from First Nations people, who continue to fight at the forefront of the climate justice movement. 

*Please note: If you're not under 30, nor looking to volunteer with the AYCC, this training is unfortunately not for you! This session has been designed for AYCC volunteers and those who are looking to actively volunteer with the AYCC.
