The Whitten Project
CDC Victoria is proud to be a community partner of the Western Bulldogs, and in particular The Whitten Project. Contributing to the communities that we serve is a core element of CDC Victoria’s ethos and one that we pride ourselves greatly on.
Our strategic partnership with The Whitten Project not only involves sponsorship of the project itself but it involves a hands on role that allows CDC Victoria to interact directly with the students.
"When we were considering this strategic partnership, it was integral for CDC Victoria to be able to adopt a proactive approach that would allow us to be part of the program directly." said Michelle Ho , Community Engagement Manager at CDC Victoria.
"We are delighted to invest in the development, education and wellbeing of the youth within The Whitten Project and have a targeted education program in store for these youth that will open their eyes to the real issues faced within the bus industry specifically."
CDCV's involvement with The Whitten Project is just one of the ways that we are able to engage with the community and give back to society, as we endeavour to strengthen our position as a leading service provider within the communities that we serve. Through programs such as The Whitten Project, CDCV also aims to educate and promote good model behaviour by addressing the key influencers within our community, or in this case, the future leaders of tomorrow.
The Whitten Project is a unique education program designed for young aspiring community leaders across Victoria’s western region to develop life, civic and employability skills through high value experiential leadership opportunities offered through the Western Bulldogs Football Club and its partner agencies.
The unique seven-month capacity building initiative is delivered in collaboration with Brimbank, Glenelg, Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Melton and Moonee Valley councils, AFL, AFL Victoria, Netball Victoria, Sport and Recreation Victoria, Victoria University and the Western Region Football League.
