Where We Do It

The Stars Foundation operates programs in eight schools across the Northern Territory, including Sanderson, Dripstone and Nightlciff Middle Schools (Darwin), Casuarina Senior College (Darwin), Katherine High School, Nhulunbuy High School, Tennant Creek High School and Yirrkala School.

It follows the recommendation from the Northern Territory Indigenous Education Review (Wilson, 2014) to provide gender equity with a system-wide engagement program for girls programs to enable economies of scale and systematic evaluation.

Similar needs exist in other jurisdictions where significant populations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people live and the Stars Foundation program could address these needs.

There is the capacity to have the program up and running in a number of locations within a short time frame. Subsequent to the commencement of programs in the Northern Territory, it would be possible to commence in other locations in other jurisdictions.
