The Noongar Budjar Rangers aims to give members of the aboriginal community opportunities to work on country and learn important skills that provide ongoing employment options.
Working on a business model of providing a responsive and competent labour force the Ranger team undertakes a range of work across the region for various organisations including local governments and other not for profits.
It is a priority for the aboriginal community for the youth to be able remain in the local community, close to family and with connection to country. Often lack of employment can make that difficult.
The Noongar Budjar Ranger program aims to develop work-ready potential employees that can move onto bigger opportunities.
The Ranger Team also provides an opportunity for organisations to increase their aboriginal participation when they may not know how to achieve that themselves.
Most importantly the team can respond quickly and help out organisations that require immediate action.
In 2018/19 over 40 individuals worked as part of the team delivering 300+ days of work.
