    Mooditj is a program for Aboriginal young people aged 10-14 years. It helps build strong young Aboriginal people who can make positive and informed choices about their relationships and sexual health.
    Mooditj Leader Training is a 4 day hands on course that builds your knowledge, skills and confidence to run Mooditj groups for young people.
    Mooditj Leader Training is designed for Aboriginal community members or people who work with Aboriginal young people in their community. Non-Aboriginal people are expected to partner with an Aboriginal person to run Mooditj. Training together is recommended.
    If you plan to run a Mooditj program –
    You can apply for a reduced fee ($100) for training, travel assistance and resources and funding to help you run Mooditj with young people.
    Young people learn about:
    • Identity – growing a strong sense of themselves
    • Respectful relationships
    • Understanding feelings
    • Speaking up
    • Goals and staying on track
    • Puberty
    • What becoming a parent might mean
    • Making decisions about sex, consent and their rights
    • Contraception and STI prevention
    • Bringing it all together
    Mooditj was developed in consultation with Aboriginal people from across WA over 10 years ago. Recently the program has been totally reviewed and modified in response to community feedback.
    The new program is still 10 sessions. Each session is 1 hour, and can be adapted to suit different groups of young people. The program can be run in many ways – 1 or 2 blocks of 5 sessions, 1 or 2 sessions a week, or over a few days in a holiday program or camp. The first 5 sessions can also be run as a short program.

    You need:
    • Support from your organisation to run a Mooditj program – at least 5 sessions
