When young, Kim would come to the GapYouth Centre for dancing and a place to hang out with her family growing up. Kim is well connected to her family and community and is a strong advocate for Aboriginal people and their health and wellbeing. She has worked at various Aboriginal organisations, as a youth worker, an alcohol and other drugs support worker and a counsellor; and has a sound knowledge of the issues affecting Indigenous people, and the challenges they face accessing services.
Kim was delighted to be elected as the Gap Youth and Community Centre’s Chairperson in February 2022. Her vision is to see new changes and improvements to the youth centre. She wants it to be a great place for the young people of Alice Springs, a place to be proud of, where they can participate in great activities and have a safe place to come too, after hours and after school, and for the young people to feel supported cared about.
Kim welcomes you to be in touch with her, for a yarn, and also if you have any questions or concerns.
