Aurora aims to inspire the academic and career aspirations and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We wish to see Indigenous Australians inspired by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academic role models, empowered to excel in tertiary education and becoming the leaders and agents of change in Australian society we know they can be.
We are changing the conversation about what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can achieve.
We deliver a suite of interconnected programs that walk with Indigenous students through each stage of their educational development and build their resilience, identity, aspirations and sense of community.
Aurora’s programs engage and support Indigenous students to build the academic skills needed to reach their career goals, whether this is by graduating from high school with the foundational skills necessary to run their own small business, or by attending TAFE or university, or even completing a doctorate at Harvard University. At Aurora, we believe that engaging Indigenous students in education is the way to create deep, lasting change.
