RISE Ventures Community Development Programs - strengthening communities and building a skilled workforce
RISE Ventures is delivering the Community Development Program in Katherine in Northern Territory, and Kowanyama/Pormpuraaw in Queensland. The program is helping to provide training and employment pathways for local people as well as developing business enterprises for long term employment and economic impact. Each region delivers activities that engage with the local community and help build infrastructure and spaces to foster community spirit and pride.
Through consultation with traditional owners and local organisations, RISE Ventures identifies activities that engage youth, provide training and employment, build local capacity and enhance community life.
Our purpose is to empower the individuals, employers and communities we work with every day. Watch Marty’s story about his journey from little boy in Cape York to Board Director at RISE.
