RACV partnering with Yalari to provide education opportunities for Indigenous children
RACV has partnered with Yalari to help Indigenous children from regional and remote communities access scholarships to attend some of Australia's leading boarding schools.
Since 2005, Yalari has been helping educate and empower Indigenous children across Australia by providing opportunities for a quality education and achieve positive outcomes.
The partnership between RACV and Yalari brings a new and exciting chapter, not only for the students Yalari support, but for the scope of the organisation as well.
“The partnership between RACV and Yalari is so exciting and the generosity of in-kind and financial support is overwhelming,” says Yalari Managing Director, Llew Mullins.
Through Yalari and the Rosemary Bishop Indigenous Education Scholarship program, Indigenous Australian students can access full-paid scholarships to attend some of Australia’s leading boarding schools including Geelong Grammar School in Victoria, Scotch College in South Australia, Kambala in New South Wales, Methodist Ladies College in Western Australia, and The Southport School in Queensland.
At these leading schools, Indigenous students will be able to have more than just an outstanding education, but experience a world of extracurricular opportunities and life-changing experiences.
By offering regional and remote Indigenous Australians a pathway to access top-tier schools, Yalari provide opportunities for Indigenous families to make valuable contributions to the wider community and implement generational change for students and their families.
“Every Australian should have access to quality education – despite their location – and educational support from organisations like Yalari make a positive difference in young people’s lives,” says RACV Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Neil Taylor.
“We look forward to supporting Yalari to deliver quality education that will provide students with the tools they need for a brighter future for themselves and their communities.”
