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.
