Educating & Empowering Indigenous children

It is our belief that education is the key to generational change and a brighter future for Indigenous children.

About

Yalari

Yalari is a not-for-profit organisation offering secondary education scholarships at leading Australian boarding schools for Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities.

We believe education is the key to generational change and a brighter future for Indigenous Australians and for our nation as a whole. We are deeply committed to the ongoing success of our national program of scholarships, student support and post-school opportunities.

Yalari respects our Elders, past and present, and acknowledges that our office is on Kombumerri country within the lands of the Yugambeh language group.

That's right! We were having so much fun we can hardly believe another Yalari Orientation Camp has come and gone! It was wonderful to see all our Year 7 and 8 students come together in preparation for their year ahead at boarding school. We are also proud of our older students who attended as Senior School Leaders and Peer Mentors to offer their support and advice.

Thank you to our valued sponsors who helped make the camp a success: CLSA Chairman's Trust, @Blackmores, The Leroy and Joy Brauer Perpetual Charitable Trust, @greyhound.australia, Pinnacle Foundation and Resolution Capital.

Thanks also to our wonderful volunteers and alumni who gave so much over the course of the week.
Last by not least, Jennie Alford from @TSS - thank you very much for hosting and looking after us (as always)!

It is with great sadness that we inform our Yalari family of the passing of Mary Boydell, our recently retired Chair.

Mary has left an indelible mark on us all with her wise, thorough, considered and graceful governance of Yalari for many years. Her friendship and support will be greatly missed.

Our love and condolences to Wally and family.
With deepest sympathy, Waverley, Llew and the Yalari team. 💐
