Try Time is a student support program that promotes inclusion for disengaged students from diverse backgrounds. Facilitated by Multicultural Development Australia (MDA) and  ACU staff, Try Time will consist of two separate sessions: the Skill Up program (MDA) and a touch football tournament (ACU). With support from Wynnum State High School (WSHS) and Brisbane Bayside State College (BBSC) staff, Try Time provides positive networking and social engagement opportunities for young people, while helping them develop positive self-identity in a changing adolescent landscape.
