Borinya offers young people an opportunity to be members of a supportive, learning community during a time in their lives when they may be struggling with social or emotional challenges or when mainstream education does not meet their needs.
Borinya is an indigenous word (Pangerang Tribe) that means
the 'ana' or branch of a river which has parted from its main course for a short time. The branch leaves the main flow of the river and later re-joins it.
This reflects one of our main aims for young people who attend
Borinya. Partners of Borinya believe that young people sometimes
need to take some time away from mainsteam schools for learning
and healing in a caring environment and later return to their options.
