About Us

Background

That it takes a village to raise a child is key to the support KLIC provides. KLIC’s work with young people is underpinned by community consultation and collaboration, recognising that each community is as unique as the young people who are part of it. Through community consultation and collaboration with stakeholders, such as government and non-government agencies, KLIC can design programs and services that best meet the needs of the young people, the organisations and the region.  Collaboration and consultation also helps to ensure that genuine stakeholder participation occurs, from the young people through to the adults that play a significant role in their lives.

KLIC Mission
KLIC supports the growth of young people and their communities through
Knowledge, Life skills, Investment and Connection.

KLIC Vision
That every young person is fully supported throughout their lives, enabling them to reach their full potential and become confident, productive and engaged members of society.
