“THE HOOP DREAMING PROJECT OPENS UP DOORS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE THAT NORMALLY WOULDN’T HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE OPPORTUNITIES.I PROUDLY SUPPORT & ENDORSE THIS POSITIVE COMMUNITY PROGRAM.”
“Growing up in Cairns there were many challenges I faced, especially being Indigenous. The H.D.P creates positive ways to combat the issues for young people in the community.”
“Alcohol and other drug abuse is a major issue in the Cairns Indigenous community. The H.D.P helps address this problem head-on and provides outlets for teenagers.”
““The crime-prevention strategies behind the H.D.P are great not only for the youth, but the city of Cairns as a whole.”
“The H.D.P gives ‘at-risk’ kids alternate ways to deal with their problems and issues in safe, supportive environments.”
“In today’s world it is easy for young women to fall into the temptations of alcohol & drugs. I believe that with the strong support from the HDP it will help lead young women in the right path to be the best they can be in their chosen sport and in life.”
“The Sport & Recreation programs utilized in the H.D.P are great ways for kids to build their self-esteem levels and learn valuable life-skills.”
“The H.D.P is a terrific way for us role-models to make a positive influence on the lives of young people.”
“The H.D.P mentoring programs helps teach kids that anything is possible and through hard-work and goal setting they can become leaders in their community.”
