We Have Three Jobs…

Keeping Kids Alive

Out of Jail

And Chasing Their Hopes & Dreams

BackTrack is for young people who are having a tough time.

BackTrack works by engaging a community of support, together helping young people to develop healthy foundations for positive life pathways. We do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes.

We’ve been working with young people in and around Armidale NSW since 2006 and have been recognised at local, state and national levels. BackTrack’s approach has a positive impact on young people who need support, and their entire community.

BackTrack: Chasing Dreams

Our new documentary update by Director Catherine Scott is out now! See how far BackTrack and our young people have come – and where we’re going. 

BRISBANE - we’re coming for you! 

Our Paws Up crew are hitting the road to be at your @thedogloversfestival on March 9 & 10 at the @bcec_brisbane 🐾

Start making plans and come see us while we’re in town.

Serious fitness training has begun for our pack, with a 5-7km run every couple of days on top of the usual daily routine and young people are stepping up on their dog handling training. 

Let’s go doggies!! 🙌🏼🐾

Second day on the job and still smilin’ ☺️👍🏼

This is our guy Chris who has been part of the BackTrack fam for years. As part of the BackTrack Works crew, he’s been gaining skills and training to help him prepare for external employment and last week, he did just that - flying the coop and landing a job with Uralla Council. 

Our social enterprise is a unique mix of paid employment and youth work. Young people gain the soft and technical skills that help them get to work and get the job done, but they also receive the unconditional support of a family - the things that many of us might take for granted that can create huge barriers for our cohort: prepping for interview, transport, getting a medical, clothes, lunch, paperwork! 

We were all so stoked to receive a message from Chris on day two - ‘I think I’ve found my place and job in life.’ ❤️

That’s payday for us mate 🙌🏼
