Waynead is awarded the Young Person of the Year and the Role Model of the Year in the Aurukun NAIDOC Awards 2020
Meet our deadly IYMP Brisbane participant Waynead Wolmby who has completed his Cert III and IV in Community Services, as well as his Certificate IV in Youth Work.
In March earlier this year, Waynead was sent back home to Aurukun due to safety reasons in relation to COVID-19. Even though it was a challenging time for Waynead, he continued to stay focused on completing his Cert IV in Youth Work and was offered a position at his local school in Aurukun as a Teacher Aide part-time.
Recently Waynead was also awarded as the Young Person of the Year and the Role Model of the Year in the Aurukun NAIDOC Awards 2020. We are proud to say that Waynead is now working with school students to inspire them to get educated, chase their dreams, and become tomorrow’s leaders.
