The Stars Foundation 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.
How Stars works
Our program is based on strong, trusting relationships. The Stars rooms provide 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. and the community.
The Stars Model
The Stars program is based around four key pillars of personal development:
- Healthy Lifestyles
- Employment, Education & Training
- Community, Culture & Leadership
The program offers activities and experiences in many different areas, including academic support, personal health and wellbeing, music, drama and dance, art, cooking and nutrition, and exercise and sport.
Students also take part in the community, cultural and volunteering activities to build their life-skills and confidence and further develop their links to culture and community. The Stars program has a strong focus on successful transitions from school into full-time work or further study.
In the Stars room, staff are highly motivated, caring and determined men and women whose focus is to care and mentor the students of Broome Senior High School to instil academic motivation, support sporting endeavours and channel the skills and abilities of students to focus on work readiness.
