ActiVIC
Description

The Reclink Australia ActiVIC program is an innovative social inclusion sport and recreation program, using these to engage at-risk youth from disadvantaged communities, including Horn of Africa, Pasifika, and indigenous communities across 9 locations in Victoria. 

Locations include:

City of Melton
City of Wyndham
City of Brimbank
City of Casey
City of Greater Dandenong
City of Moonee Valley (Flemington)
City of Melbourne (North Melbourne)
City of Hume (Broadmeadows)
City of Banyule (West Heidelberg)

The ActiVIC program annually engages over 3,000 Victorians experiencing disadvantage, with recent research from La Trobe University on our structured programs showing that participants show reduced rates of drug and alcohol abuse, improved mental health outcomes, and improved employment outcomes.

We acknowledge the funding provided from the Victorian State Government’s Community Support Fund to implement these programs. ActiVIC is delivered partnership with our community support agencies, primary health providers, police and correctional services, sporting clubs, schools, and state sporting associations.
