ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 9. Goal E: Working with all Partners 118 expended for alternative program. ACTIONS: 140. Implement the recommendations of the RPA Evaluation. 141. Negotiate with partners stage 3 of the RPA. 9.2 GEAT The Groote Eylandt Aboriginal Trust (GEAT) was established in the 1960s through the governance of the Church Missionary Society to manage and distribute mining royalties and to negotiate with the mining company that resulted in the CMS Agreement. This activity was taken over by the ALC when it was formed in 1991 but GEAT continues to receive funds to allow it to provide services to Anindilyakwa people. The independent and well-resourced GEAT has however over the years run independently to the strategic and well-governed agenda of the ALC and its economic arm of GEBIE. Recent reforms to GEAT have provided an opportunity to develop greater collaboration and coordination with GEAT. The ALC is committed to strengthening its relationship with GEAT for the benefit of Anindilyakwa people as a whole. The following areas are recommended as a beginning point of such an increased level of collaboration: FUNERALS There have been issues around duplication of funding of funerals by the ALC and GEAT from royalty monies. ACTIONS: 142. Work with GEAT to put in place a simple knowledge management accounting system that allows the two organisations to share information on where funeral funding is being provided. 143. Support GEAT to conduct the funerals. PROGRAMS FOR YOUTH The new administration of GEAT has indicated it would like to see a particular focus on increasing opportunities and outcomes for Anindilyakwa youth. The Youth Strategy is an initiative of the Regional Partnership Agreement (Stage 2). In early 2010 a Youth Steering Committee was established as a sub-committee of the Regional Partnership Committee, to guide consultations and the development of a five-year Youth Strategy for the Anindilyakwa communities of Groote Eylandt and Bickerton Island. The Youth Strategy targets young people from the ages of eight to 25 years old. This document outlines the vision, goals,
