About

Bungee is an inclusive resilience-building program that promotes social connection and emotional wellbeing through the arts. The program supports children and young people (aged 5-18).

Bungee offers a suite of art-based programs in schools and community settings and fosters a supportive environment that encourages participants to socially connect with others as well as develop new and existing artistic skills.

Bungee classes operate across the ACT and are facilitated in a small, safe and supportive group setting. The program employs professional artists and support workers who develop a series of interactive and structured workshops that are tailored to the individual skill level, need, and interest of the enrolled participants.

The Bungee program also offers eight individual counselling sessions for participants (aged 5-18) with a qualified counsellor. Counselling sessions have an emphasis on building resilience and enhancing the social and emotional wellbeing of participants. Sessions also support families facing a wide range of needs with therapies based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Client-Centred Counselling, and Play Therapy.

Some programs offered at Bungee are DRUMBEAT, Cool Kids, Seasons for Growth, and Bungee Art. The programs offer weekly sessions over eight weeks in both school and community settings and are free of charge. All programs are delivered during school term and are limited to groups of eight.

An intake interview with the parents/caregivers is required.
