Bradley (Brad) Crosbie founded Where Youth Live Dreams (WYLD) Projects, an Indigenous corporation providing customised mentoring for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths through integrated, real-world projects.
WYLD goes beyond education and skills development, emphasising self-actualisation and personal growth as the core of their legacy-based learning projects.
Birthed out of the crisis of meeting the long-distance needs of primary producers and community, their ‘Better to Give’ mentoring camps – also the Corporation’s ethos – allow young people, aged 14-24, to give back to their community and country.
Youth volunteer their labour on struggling rural properties in the Burnett Mary Region and throughout Queensland and pre/post natural disaster events, allowing them to experience the hardships people endure in rural communities – along with the positive benefits of giving people a hand.
Meeting ‘needs with seeds’, Brad’s care and commitment is helping these youth grow a new perspective on life and become the best version of themselves.
