Teachabout has been awarded a grant of $10,000 as part of Australia Post's 2020 Community Grants Program for its work in Jilkminggan.
The grant will fund their 'Supporting Community Connections and Leadership' project.
This initiative works with local Aboriginal community members in remote Jilkminggan to design and facilitate school holiday programs and activities.
The project supports youth mental health by creating meaningful opportunities to engage with traditional forms of knowledge and learn from Elders.
The Jilkminggan school is located east of Mataranka.
Teachabout is one of 79 community organisations across the country to receive a 2020 Australia Post Community Grant of up to $10,000.
This year's grants program aligns with Australia Post's commitment to supporting mental health, funding projects that help improve connection and mental wellbeing in local communities.
Australia Post executive general manager Nicole Sheffield said she was proud to be awarding these funds during what has been an incredibly challenging year for communities across Australia.
"We know when we connect, we feel better," Ms Sheffield said.
"The organisations we've funded aim to help improve the mental health and wellbeing of Australians by helping individuals and communities be more connected.
"The projects will help to increase community awareness and understanding of mental health and how to stay mentally well, and strengthen connections to mental health support services," Ms Sheffield said.
More than $500,000 in total will be awarded to not-for-profit community organisations across Australia, with the majority of recipients in rural and regional areas.
