With a double degree in Social Science and Community Development, Adrian’s passion for working with young people stems from teaching placements and creating youth development projects.
“I’m really looking forward to working with my new team and other youth service providers across the region to identify what areas and programs need improvement or expansion.”
Mission Australia has offices in Darwin and Palmerston and run a range of programs that help young people engaged in dangerous behaviour or at risk of homelessness, stay on the straight and narrow.
They also manage popular singing competition, Urban Quest, which aims to help young people build self esteem through music and mentoring.
“I want to be proactive, and make and contribute to programs so they count and help the lives of young people.”
