Stayin’ On Track is a collaborative community-based project, working with funding from Young and Well Co-operative Research Centre, the University of Newcastle NSW, and Microsoft.
The website was created by a group of Aboriginal dads who got together and shared their experiences about fatherhood. They wanted to pass on useful information and tips to other young dads for support. The stories shared centre on themes about pride in being a father, tough times, culture, the emotions on finding out they would be a dad, feeling down, and who their role models are.
Stayin’ on Track showcases some of these stories and aims to acknowledge dads who are doing great work and sharing their insights with other young dads.
Visit the Stayin’ on Track website and hear what other young dads have to say about the real stuff of fathering at a young age.
