Navigator Program

Mildura Rural City Council, in partnership with Northern Mallee Local Learning and Employment Network (NMLLEN), is delivering the Navigator Program in the northern Mallee.

Navigator case managers provide assertive outreach, long term support to disengaged young people aged 12 to 17 years to help them overcome barriers and successfully re-engage with an education or training pathway.
