“We hope the film will inspire communities to take a different approach to working with young people at risk of social exclusion, particularly in rural and regional areas.”

— Filmmaker Cathy Scott

Falling Through The Cracks

Backtrack Boys documentary highlights key issues for young people. Youth are vulnerable to falling through the cracks and dropping out of mainstream education and can get caught up in the juvenile justice system.

BackTrack Youth Works is an innovative program that keeps kids off the street and out of jail, breaks the cycle of drugs and alcohol and teaches young people to participate in the community.

1000+ kids have participated in the program and crime rates in Armidale have dropped by about 38% (one of only two towns in decline in Australia).

It’s a program that presents a real model for other rural towns.
