Community Learning Programs
Community Learning Projects make a valuable contribution to the Yorke Peninsula community. The projects address environmental issues, positive community relationships, support to the elderly and assistance to the disadvantaged.
We believe that if young men are to be valued they must be active participants in the community to which they belong. Boys are given active roles in making decisions and improving the well-being of communities and individuals of the Southern Yorke Peninsula assisting them to transition from adolescence to adulthood.
Community Learning Projects are divided into two categories. Firstly, projects that involve the entire class, and secondly, individual projects that allow boys to choose issues which they are passionate about and which they believe they can make a contribution to.
This program began on the Yorke Peninsula in early 2002. It is a recreational service offered to people with disabilities by the District Council of Yorke Peninsula.
The aim is to assist disabled people with a fun social environment, to create new friends and develop an increased sense of well being and self worth.
Southern Yorke Peninsula (SYP) Landcare - Allepo Pine Removal Programme
In 1999, members of the SYP Landcare Group Inc., supported by 46 interested locals, formed the YP Feral Trees Management Group.
Their goal is to improve the natural environment of the Southern Yorke Peninsula by removing pest trees, or woody weeds, from roadsides. This benefits landholders and the native wildlife, as well as make the area more visually appealing.
