Girls Academy


Role Models and Leaders Australia has established 12 Girls Academies throughout WA, the NT and NSW to bring about significant change to the lives of at-risk Indigenous girls. The Girls Academy works within the school system to break down barriers such as drug and alcohol abuse, pregnancy and violence that prevent Aboriginal girls from completing their education. Sport and extra-curricular activities, intensive mentoring and counselling, and a structured reward system keep the girls engaged in their education and their future. An Academy girl can shape her own destiny, lift up her family, and transform her community.
