MEDIA RELEASE

 

TARGET ZER0 – Off and running!

On 18 November an exciting and ambitious project, TARGET ZER0 was launched. Aimed at eradicating youth criminalisation and the overrepresentation in the justice system of First Nations, African, Pasifika children and youth and those living in residential care in Brimbank, Melton and Wyndham.

An impressive range of organisations and institutions have committed to achieving zero criminalisation and overrepresentation including:

Centre of Multicultural Youth (CMY)
WEstJustice
Western RAJAC
Whitelion
Jesuit Social Services (JSS)
Anglicare Victoria
Victoria University
Wyndham Community Education Centre
CommUnity Plus
Youth Support + Advocacy Service
Youthlaw
Youth Junction Inc
Youth and Family Support Network Inc


You can see our launch video below.

TARGET ZER0 is about doing our work differently to achieve our goal; moving the dial in our expectations and no longer accepting overrepresentation as an outcome.

TARGET ZER0 wants to increase collaboration amongst all stakeholders in Brimbank, Melton and Wyndham, especially those impacted by youth criminalisation and overrepresentation and develop common agendas to drive down overrepresentation towards zero.

To succeed, TARGET ZER0 needs the commitment and wisdom of community, government and non-government organisations in Brimbank, Melton and Wyndham and we look forward over the coming months to telling you more about the project and having you join on.
