What is Juno Centre?

Juno Centre is a large property approximately 10km’s from the Tennant Creek township and is owned by the Barkly Shire Council. The Department of Education have leased 250 hectares, of the 1000 hectare lot, and have developed the property to provide activities, programs and training opportunities to students across the Barkly Region, the Northern Territory, Australia and eventually from around the world.

What is the purpose of Juno?

The focus is on delivering residential and in-reach programs to students across the Barkly Region from remote communities, regional centres and in the future students from around Australia and eventually from around the world in the areas of agriculture, horticulture, art, conservation, language and culture, music, sport and learning on country.

Juno Centre is where the Healthy Life Creative Life program will occur through the integration of projects within the department’s existing VET programs and connecting with other youth service providers in the Barkly Region. The aim is to improve support for disengaged and ‘at risk’ middle and senior secondary students in order for them to return to mainstream schooling or progress to employment or training. By working with youth service providers, community groups, non-government organisations and other government agencies, a broad range of programs will be facilitated at Juno, providing students who live in the Barkly Region with a greater range of opportunities.
