Warlpiri Youth Development Aboriginal Corporation (WYDAC) has dedicated itself to developing the strength, health, confidence and leadership of Warlpiri youth since 1993. The program aims to promote positive and meaningful future pathways for all young Warlpiri people. The notable, and sustainable, success of the program has been firmly based on the strength of Warlpiri youth, families and their communities, as well as the ongoing commitment of staff. The program was created by, and for, Warlpiri people, and is governed by a Warlpiri Committee. The WYDAC head office is in Yuendumu Community, however WYDAC is comprised of a variety of programs operating at five different Warlpiri sites – Yuendumu, Willowra, Nyirripi, Lajamanu and Mt Theo Outstation. WYDAC also have an office located in Alice Springs. There are over 70 staff across the entire organisation with more than half of these being Warlpiri people.
The Sports Development Coordinator role is a new position to address an identified gap in WYDAC’s implementation of GMAAAC funded sports contracts and support services. Over the last few years, the amount of funding to support sporting activities allocated by GMAAAC committees has increased significantly. We have identified a particular need to support more female participation in sporting activities.
The position will be based in Yuendumu NT, with occasional travel to Willowra, Nyirrpi and Alice Springs, which may include overnight stays.
The Sports Development Coordinator reports directly to the Youth Services Manager and is responsible to the CEO and the WYDAC Board.
The Sports Development Coordinator will directly supervise WYDAC sports employees in Yuendumu and assist with supervision for sports employees in Willowra and Nyirrpi.
The following areas are critical to the role and constitute the primary duties required to be successful in fulfilling the duties associated with this position and other duties as directed.
