CDU Youth Futures Workshop

Understand and discover the power you have in assessing your mental health! This alcohol and drug-free event is aligned with National Youth Week and will assist you in developing positive mental health and help build your self-esteem and resilience.

Take part in activities with amazing youth leaders, who are students of CDU, and come from Darwin, Katherine, and all over the world. We believe positive mental health will support better decision-making and kickstart your goals for early career development as you travel down your own unique path in life.

Everyone is different and we love that about you!
