Stories of Strength
Bankstown Youth Development Service delivers Stories of Strength as part of the COMPACT program in partnership with Sir Joseph Banks High and FBi Radio.
The project runs workshops and trains young people in interviewing skills so they can go into the community and identify someone they believe has a story of strength and resilience that can be shared on a digital platform. Project coordinator Zainab Kadhim said, “We hope, through this process, it facilitates cross-cultural and inter-generational understanding so they can learn more empathy, which bolsters social cohesion.”
Stories of Strength is a new project part of the COMPACT program that teaches young people to share stories of resilience.
