Community Development Program

Community Development Program

GEBIE operates a Community Development Program (CDP) in the Communities of Angurugu, Umbakumba and Milyakburra and at a number of outstations in the Groote Archipelago.

Local people are employed in the delivery of this Program which is focused on local decision making and local solutions. The CDP offers a broad range of flexible activities to not only increase job seekers’ skills, but also contribute to their Community. These vary in each Community and different activities are offered at different times according to Community demand.

Local employers look favourably upon job seekers who have completed these activities and many have been hired as a result of their participation in the Program. Through the Program, job seekers with activity requirements are expected to do up to 20 hours per week of work-like activities that benefit their Community.
