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.

Yesterday Yalari Alumnus Isaac Burgoyne dropped into our Head Office on the Gold Coast. Isaac has just returned from Alice Springs where he undertook a 1 month internship on the road with St. Johns paramedics.

“I loved every minute of it and was sad to leave. The experience really opened up my eyes and allowed me to lock in what I want to do with my career. I’ve already applied to go back.”
