A good education can lay the foundation for success in life and achieving a higher level of education is one factor to help reduce Indigenous disadvantage in Australia. But many Indigenous youth face a multitude of barriers to completing their education and remain at high risk of disengaging from school. Stars Foundation provides educational mentoring and engagement programs that support Indigenous girls and young women to attend school, complete Year 12 and move into further study or work. Our intensive, wrap-around model supports girls for up to seven years – starting in upper primary school, through senior school and following school completion. It ensures a consistent support base across formative years and during critical transaction points. Key to the success of our program is full-time, in-school Mentors that develop strong, trusting relationships with participants and guide them daily to make positive choices towards realising their goals. Our Mentors provide daily transport, healthy meals, educational assistance, social and emotional support, and offer a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities. Our program activities engage and motivate students, while building resilience, confidence and self-belief. They focus on four key areas of personal development– Education, Training and Employment; Healthy Lifestyles; Community, Culture and Leadership; Wellbeing – and are designed to address the specific needs of Indigenous girls and young women.
