ALC 15 year Strategic Plan Executive Summary 8 UNDERLYING PRINCIPALS AND CORE FUNCTIONS The underlying principles of the Centres operations are intrinsically linked to the vision statements of the Strategic Plan: Protect, maintain and promote Anindilyakwa culture. Invest in the present to build a future. Create pathways for youth to stand in both worlds. The concept of the Centres comes from a strength-based approach to utilise the important and strong aspects of Anindilyakwa people; culture, language, history, customary practices and connection to country, to engage individuals in early childhood development, education, training and economic participation. This is what Anindilyakwa people have told the ALC they want. The functions and activities of the Centres will complement the Stronger Futures priority area for action in school attendance and educational achievement. It will provide culture based programs from early years through to employment. In particular, it complements the school attendance and enrolment welfare reform measures by providing avenues for re engaging youth into the education system through the Centres programs. The Centres will also provide training and employment pathways for youth, which will give weight and relevance to schooling. The activities of the Centres will target these four developmental stages, which are described in further detail below: EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT The Centres will host a range of early childhood development programs and activities and work in partnership with early childhood service providers in engaging families in the development of the newborn to five-year-old cohort. Linguistics activities of the ALC will operate as a part of the Centres, with the view that current services are enriched and expanded, particularly in Umbakumba and Milyakburra. The Early Childhood Language and Literacy course introduced under Stage 2 of the Regional Partnership Agreement would be further developed and delivered as part of the Centres activities. The Early Childhood Language and Literacy course has been delivered by the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation working closely with parents, carers and teachers in Umbakumba, Angurugu and Milyakburra by delivering workshops that teach foundational pre-literacy and language learning platforms in Anindilyakwa and English that can be used to support the early learning of their children. Partnerships with the Families as First Teachers program and playgroup will also see the Centres being accessed by these and other early childhood service providers in engaging families in early childhood learning that is linked to first language and culture. These programs and activities will access the rich collection of the Centres materials, which include clan songs and stories in enriching the early development of children by grounding them in culture-based learning.
