Akeyulerre is an Aboriginal-governed organisation based in the heart of Mparntwe (Alice Springs). Established 18 years ago by Arrernte Elders, Akeyulerre supports the practice and celebration of culture, and ensures that cultural knowledge and practices are passed on to the next generations.

  • Developing training plans for each intake of 26-week Artwe Areye Program participants
  • Liaising with other organisations or agencies to secure relevant skills-building opportunities and to source potential contract-based work opportunities
  • Ensuring attendance, training and work outcome record keeping is routinely maintained to a high standard
  • Maintaining a safe working environment and promoting best-practice WH&S standards in all aspects of the work program.
  • Managing the upkeep and maintenance of all work tools and equipment, vehicle and office resources
