Clontarf Foundation program for young Aboriginal men

The Clontarf Foundation builds supportive relationships, a welcoming environment and uses a diverse range of activities, to improve the self-esteem and confidence of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men. This helps them to participate in education, employment and society in a positive way.

Seven Clontarf Foundation academies are being piloted in 9 SA government schools from 2019 until 2021. The program is offered to young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men in years 5 to 12 at participating schools.

Academy mentors work closely with the school, the community and their local partners to support participants with their:

  • discipline
  • leadership

  • employment prospects.

The program is strongly aligned to the:
