You cannot be what you cannot see. Aurora’s new Outreach Program connects role models to students so they can see what is possible.
The Outreach Program connects high school students with high-achieving Indigenous role models. By sharing their journey, these role models provide insights about university life, career pathways and lessons they learned along the way.
Although there are many successful sporting role model programs for Indigenous students, Aurora’s Outreach program is different in that it highlights academic and professional career pathways. The Program’s role models include graduates from the world’s leading universities including Cambridge, Harvard and Oxford. The Program inspires and raises aspirations of Indigenous high school students to ‘dream big’ and, importantly, think beyond stereotypes and limitations.
