The pilot program from the Mallee District Aboriginal Services is called Koori Men’s Diversion program, and it aims to motivate young Aboriginal men into following the right path by avoiding the court system.
The program provides First Nation men with support to successfully complete their court orders, bail and/or community corrections orders.
