The newest Strength for Life group: welcome to the Burundian community!

It was fabulous to see the Burundian community start Strength for Life at Davoren Park recently, with the support of a Northern Community Connections grant. The group took advantage of the fine weather and embraced the outdoor SFL session with great enthusiasm!

A huge thanks to Emmanuel and Elias from the Burundian Association for all they have done to enable this group to get started. Special thanks to Diane our fabulous Strength for Life instructor for all her leadership!

South Australian Volunteer Awards 2024

Clara, Cultural Diversity Officer for the Strength for Life Program, was privileged to attend the South Australian Volunteer Awards 2024 hosted by Volunteering SA and NT. Following a warm welcome from The Hon. Nat Cook MP, the community recognised the outstanding contribution of South Australian individuals, community organisations and businesses in volunteering.

It was so wonderful to celebrate the amazing range of initiatives and acknowledge the time, effort and experience of so many people! Among the nominees celebrated was COTA SA’s CALD Strength for Life volunteer Elaine Delgado who has contributed so much to advance the cultural diversity aspects of our Strength for Life program. Thank you, Elaine, for your remarkable work!
