Bibi Yungan commenced as a flexible cultural support service in 2016. Bibi Yungan is a Djabugay phrase which means “Train up a Child.” and comes from Djabugay elders who attended the Kuranda Seventh Day Adventist church in the 1980’s. Establishing a culturally appropriate values based family support service has been a vision of the Kuranda Mona Mona Elders, the Kuranda SDA church members and community parents for many years.
Bibi Yungan is wholly supported by Ngoonbi Community Service Indigenous Corporation, Elders, community leaders and community members. Bibi Yungan instills values and is culturally designed training to grow strong resilient families who can take their place in their community and the world.
" We are finding that a lot more parents are talking and getting into the school to address issues. Parents are becoming more engaged and interested in their child’s quality of education. "
