Mechanical Engineer, writer, petrol head and public advocate for empowering youth and women, and only 27, amazing doesn’t even begin to describe Yasmin Abdel-Magied. By the time she was 16 this proud Sudanese-Egyptian-Australian Muslim founded 'Youth Without Borders', an organisation that helps young people to work for positive change in their communities. In 2012 she was named 'Young Leader' in the Australian Financial Review, and Westpac's inaugural '100 Women of Influence Awards'. Now working full time as a well-site drilling engineer on oil and gas rigs, Yasmin is the role model we all need!

We welcomed our new cohort of cadets over the weekend at our annual first year cadetship camp in Malmsbury. At camp cadets learn about well-being, academic and employment skills, and get a chance to bond with their new cohort. Welcome new cadets!

Huge shout outs to Doxa Cadet Alumni Brendan Lawley who has published a novel about growing up in regional Victoria which the Herald Sun has given the thumbs up. Our CEO, Steve Clifford, mentored Brendan at Allens Linklaters and attended the book launch last Friday. It's always inspiring to see our Cadets go on to achieve great things. We can't wait to read the book Brendan!

Last week we took a group of students from Melbourne's Western English Language School out to Koyoora State Park for our specialised Journey Program for refugees and newly arrived migrants. The students, team leaders and our Malmsbury Camp Manager were also interviewed by WIN News Bendigo. :) #Youth #YoungPeople #Adventure #Exploring #Education #OutdoorEducation #Environment #Interview #Media #WinBendigo

We love receiving feedback about our programs. A teacher from Hume central had this to say about our Future Focus Program, "Over the last couple years we have seen many changes in the students who have had the exclusive privilege to attend the DOXA Future Focus Program. We have seen higher levels of engagement, and they appear to come back from the program feeling more comfortable with themselves, with each other and with the classroom teachers. DOXA's unique program has really brought out confidence in students as they return to the school environment more vibrant and confident in their own personalities." #DoxaOrg #YoungPeople #Leadership #Success #AcheivingGreatnessTogether #Positivity #Opportunity #confidence #support #empowerment #community #employment

Our Young Legend this week is Amrita Hepi. Amrita is a proud Bundulung and Ngapuhi woman, she is a dancer, dance teacher, choreographer, artist, writer, creative collaborator, and radio host. She says "I'd like to continue to make dance and performance work that shifts binary ideas around race and gender. I'd like to assisst young women (especially those in minority positions) in the relasition of thier goals, moving with power, and self-detemination."

This week Doxa Cadet Taylah took over our blog to share her journey working on Doxa's Reconciliation Action Plan working. She says that "with no representation and little understanding of my culture, I will be honest and say that at times I have found it tough to find that sense of belonging that some of my peers have benefited from."

Our programs aim to help young people have positive life experiences and to succeed in life, so when one of our participants becomes a Doxa volunteer we couldn't be prouder! One Future Focus Team Leader had this to say about why they volunteer with Doxa, "Doxa was able to support me when I was uncertain and not at all confident in myself and dreams. I want to be part of the cycle of positive social change and empowerment, to help assist the young people in knowing that they can rise above and grow from the challenges they may be facing.”#DoxaOrg #YoungPeople #Leadership #Success #AcheivingGreatnessTogether #Positivity #Opportunity #confidence #support #empowerment

Huge thanks to Tessa Vrettas from V/Line who visited our Malmsbury Camp to present us with a certificate of support. We are so grateful for our long-standing partnership with V/Line, who provide subsidised transport for our Camps program and also support our Cadetship Program. <3

In the words of Jenny Mikakos, Minister for Youth Affairs "Young Victorians are overwhelmingly doing great and contributing positively to out state - we want to recognise and celebrate that."#DoxaOrg #YoungPeople #Leadership #Success #AcheivingGreatnessTogether #Positivity #Opportunity #confidence #support #empowerment #victorianyouthweek

This week Future Insights participant Layal took over our blog to share her story and how she makes the most out of every opportunity. Layal says “opportunity is a term I thrive on and if I was to define myself in one word, that term would be opportunistic."Check out our blog to read the full story!
