We respond to communities

We have a goal to help as many young people having a hard time as possible.

The way we will meet our goal and expand BackTrack is not by adding more kids to our existing programs and services in Armidale, but by responding to community requests to support communities establish their own youth support programs.

We call this BackTrack Everywhere

Every community is different and we tailor our support to meet the needs of individual communities. Much like how we approach our work with kids.

Some communities want

  • Help to get started
  • Support to build on what already exists in their regions
  • To simply understand more about the BackTrack way.

Community solutions to community challenges

When we work with communities we work with drivers on the ground. We believe it is critical for communities to own and run their own programs as they know their local context and young people best. We provide mentoring support to help these local drivers design, establish and run their own flexible, wholistic, long-term programs that help out young people having a hard time.

The BackTrack approach is a community solution to a community challenge. One of our fundamental beliefs is that it takes a village to raise a child. We encourage all communities to work together connecting schools, police, council, industry, youth workers, young people and anyone else on the ground to collectively design local solutions.
