Despite living in a disadvantaged community, many of our young people have powerful stories of triumph and success that will inspire others of any age and from all walks of life. 

Inspire U: Stories from the Valley

Meet some amazing people from Gumbaynggirr Country, Nambucca Valley who have achieved wonderful things and had success in ways meaningful to them, despite challenges. The Inspire U digital series developed from community consultation where young people from Nambucca Valley, and those important to them, wanted to see local success stories and know what's possible.

Digital Storytelling Series

The Inspire U series is a purpose-driven platform of shared stories, inspiring the next generation to reach their full potential. 

Through these narratives, young people from a diversity of backgrounds will talk about their strengths, share the challenges they have overcome and highlight people who have helped them along the way, while growing up in the Nambucca Valley.

The series is a tool to be utilised by parents, teachers and career advisors to motivate, re-inspire and encourage current students to make the most of the opportunities available to them whilst providing greater exposure to career opportunities, future life paths and networks.
