Kaya Folks,

Wungening Aboriginal Corporation has had the enormous pleasure of hosting another two McCusker Centre Internships, Shadah and Carmen, that have now come to an end. The interns worked with the Manager Strategic Projects on developing the organisation’s research strategy and a literature review on the impact of alcohol and other drugs on the Aboriginal community.

Lindey Andrews - Manager Strategic projects
“It was a delight to work with Shadah and Carmen. We are so appreciative of their contribution, fresh perspective and all the work they put in; and wish them the very best for the future”

“I’ve learnt a great deal about the devastating effects of alcohol and other drugs on an individual and the community, and how there can be many underlying/perpetuating factors that are interconnected. Thank you to all the staff at the Wungening Aboriginal Corporation for being so caring and approachable.”

“I feel deeply privileged to have been able to apply the skills that I have developed throughout my Commerce degree in a practical environment that aids in contributing towards the betterment of society in the unique way that Wungening does. Overall, not only has this experience enhanced my understanding of the many issues faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities- but also the way in which these issues can be addressed in a helpful and culturally appropriate manner.”
