End of Financial Year Appeal

Aurora’s high school program, The Aspiration Initiative, is all about investing in potential.

We know the high school years are critical. Yet the majority of Indigenous young people don’t feel like they belong at school, and don’t believe in their ability as a student.  Given this, it’s not surprising that the majority don’t complete Year 12, don’t go on to university, and face a future of missed opportunity.   

All of our kids have that spark of potential.  Our job is to nurture their love of learning, build their academic skills and raise their aspirations – so that they succeed in school and dream big about their futures.

Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students join the program in Year 8 and continue with us for 6 years, until the first year out of high school.

What makes The Aspiration Initiative unique is the combination of three core elements:

·         We build academic skills through academic camps in school holidays.

·         We strengthen culture by building relationships between our students and Indigenous staff, academic role models and Aboriginal Elders in the program.

·         We provide continuous wrap-around support, ensuring that we can help our kids respond to issues they face and keep them well and on-track.

The impact for our kids is life changing.  Our program works to deliver:

·         Better results in school

·         Higher levels of school completion

·         Better ATAR results

·         More university enrolments

·         More positive post-school pathways.

This end of financial year please consider giving a gift to Aurora to help us invest in the potential of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids.

Your support really makes a difference. Thank you.
