Here at Yalari, we believe that education is the key to generational change and a brighter future for Indigenous Australians. Our approach is to offer education and support to Indigenous children so they can achieve positive outcomes for themselves and their families. We want to offer them the opportunity to dream big and achieve, and to go on and make valuable contributions within their communities and to Australia as a whole.
Statements of Commitment to Child Protection
Yalari supports the rights of children and is committed to the safety and well-being of the children and young people it works with. Yalari recognises that children have the right to special protection because of their vulnerability to exploitation and abuse and makes a commitment to prevent any person from working with children if they pose an unacceptable risk to children.
This includes a commitment to responding to allegations of harm resulting from the conduct or actions of any person associated with the company (in any role, albeit paid or unpaid). Our approach is to provide a safe and supportive environment for all students and requires all employees, volunteers and visitors to model and encourage behaviour that upholds the dignity and protection of students from harm. In support of these commitments, Yalari is dedicated to its Child Protection Policy which ensures relevant child protection policies, risk management strategies, procedures and training is in place to effectively address the safety and well-being of students in its’ care.
