Stars Foundation uses a highly successful, tailored approach to provide holistic mentoring support to one of the most at-risk groups in Australia – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women.
Stars operates full-time, intensive support programs for Indigenous girls in schools, with the aim of improving health and education outcomes for this cohort. Stars offers personal development activities and experiences in many different areas, including academic support, personal health and wellbeing, art, cooking and nutrition, and exercise and sport.
Students also take part in community, cultural and volunteering activities to build their life-skills and confidence and further develop their links to culture and community.
This program operates in partnership with Kalgoorlie Boulder Community High School.
