Click onĀ STEMM Program

The multi-award winning program supports pregnant girls and young mothers in a safe, non-judgemental environment with individual support plans developed by trained case managers. Each girl will be given the opportunity to develop lifeskills, parenting, self-worth, healthy relationships, pre & post birth plans and physical & emotional well-being. In parternship with Education Queensland, TAFE and the University of the Sunshine Coast, girls will be able to engage with learning pathways towards certified outcomes. All girls are given the opportunity to develop their mothering skills through access to a variety of experts involved in maternity services, breastfeeding, child health and Child & Youth Mental Health Services (C.Y.M.H.S). All participants are individually matched with carefully selected and trained mentors.

A GWQ-GC pat of this program initiative was recently accepted in principle. As the next step, the Co-ordinator and President are in the process of negotiating a suitable meeting time with the Principals and Deputy Principals of some Gold Coast schools.
