Stars provides a holistic program that supports Indigenous girls and young women to attend and remain engaged at school, complete Year 12 and move into full-time work or further study.
Our program is based on strong, trusting relationships. The Stars Room provides a culturally safe, warm environment – a place where the girls and young women in our program feel nurtured and inspired.
Our full-time Mentors provide a diverse range of activities to support our Stars to develop the self-esteem, confidence and life skills they need to successfully participate in school and transition into a positive and independent future.
