what we do
HELPING YOUNG INDIGENOUS PEOPLE ACHIEVE THEIR GOALs
First People Project provides a mentoring program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander boys and girls at boarding school.
First Nations students are partnered with a mentor one-on-one. Our mentors come from a range of backgrounds, but are all interested in volunteering their time to assist these boys and girls navigate the challenges of high-school and young-adult life.
The purpose of this mentoring program is to build friendships and create a strong understanding of each of the students. Then, by the time they graduate, as a Charity, we can use our resources and network to make their time transitioning from school to work, study or whatever it may be, as seamless as possible.
As far as we are concerned, these relationships are for life.
