DARE ~ Community Participation and Capacity Building Program

Dare to step off the treadmill and onto a path of your choosing. Age and Ability will not limit you here, as we have the team and resources to support you on your journey.
Background
In 2018 one of our CONNECT participants wanted to perform in a short play. An opportunity to audition came up, and we were able to support them through the process. Being led and not dictating is a fundamental part of how we work.
So when there were no rolls for children, we recruited more children, jointly created a script, a play, produced the play for a festival and supported it through to performance.

It was this experience which gave us the inspiration to offer a program specifically designed to support the individual (or group) to follow their dreams, build their capacity and create their own futures.
Further programs that have developed from this philosophy and practise are;
“Mind Yourself” supports a participant towards creating and producing her own mindfulness resource.
“Christmas Cracker Workshop” at Wollongong City Library for a participant to meet her goal of delivering a workshop to members of the general public.
“House of BLING!”, created by a new CONNECT participant, is being supported by DARE so they can access additional resources to assist the participants project.
“Upcycled Art” at Green Connect Op Shop – for a 10-year-old CONNECT Participant to have an opportunity to use her excellent leadership skills to support other children to create and make crafty things out of waste due to go to landfill.
