Stars supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women to attend school, complete Year 12 and move into full-time work or further study.
The program is based on strong, trusting relationships. The Stars Room is a warm, welcoming environment – where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women feel safe, nurtured, understood and inspired.
Our full-time Mentors provide a diverse range of activities to support young women to develop the self-esteem, confidence and life skills they need to successfully participate in school and transition into a positive and independent future.
The Stars program offers personal development activities and experiences in many different areas, including sport, exercise, music, drama, art, cooking, and nutrition. 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.
Stars has a strong focus on successful transitions from school into full-time work or further study. At the completion of Year 12, Stars Transition teams provide intensive support to our young women so that they can move successfully into full-time employment, training or tertiary study.
