Our History

The official launch of the True Blue Dreaming Youth Mentoring Project took place at Wyalkatchem District High School on the 27 June 2004. More than 200 people including parents, young people, service providers, local government members and teachers from Wylie, Koorda and Trayning attended the day’s activities. The launch of this exciting pilot project occurred after countless hours of work by the Local Co-ordinating Group, Wyalkatchem District High School, Shire of Wyalkatchem, Program Advisory Group, and several key people, without whose assistance the project would not have been possible.

True Blue Dreaming was founded by 2001 Young Australian of the Year Dr James Fitzpatrick and one of our student mentors, Akram Azimi, was recognised for his work with young people and became 2013 Young Australian of the Year. In 2013 Professor Fiona Stanley became our Patron.
