Every year we support over 8,822 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children
By almost all socio-economic indicators, Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the most disadvantaged group in the country.
Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students face additional challenges in their journey through and beyond school and due to their circumstances are often less likely to complete Year 12 than other students. There are strong links between higher levels of education and improved employment, income and health outcomes.
Our work in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities aims to keep children, families and communities engaged in learning by providing positive educational experiences, opportunities to grow life skills and access to role models.
With a focus on working together with communities, schools and government, we strive to be culturally responsive, effective and holistic.
