Southern Community Integration Program (CIP)
The Community Integration Program (CIP) works with young people in out-of-home care (i.e. residential, foster or kinship care) to explore a new activity, sport or interest area within their community, with the support of a volunteer. These links create connections between young people and their community to reduce isolation and disconnection by increasing social skills and self-confidence. Often, the mentor/mentee-type of relationship can endure after the 12 month program has finished.
