AFL SportsReady’s recognised success in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment has resulted in a series of partnerships with national corporate partners.

We are proud to deliver employment programs for organisations including the ANZ and NAB, Westpac, CBA, Australia Post, Telstra, the state governments of Victoria and Western Australia, the AFL and the Collingwood Football Club Foundation among others.

Current partnership programs: 


BARRAWARN PROGRAM

Working with the Collingwood Football Club Foundation, AFL SportsReady delivered the ‘Barrawarn’ program, a three year initiative aimed at providing young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with education and employment opportunities in metropolitan and regional Victoria.
 

To date our 15 young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians have worked with the City of Yarra, Darebin City Council and AFL Victoria in areas including sports administration, business administration and hospitality. The program’s success has seen it expand into a direct employment model, providing new opportunities for an additional 40 plus Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
 

 




NATIONAL AUSTRALIA BANK

 

AFL SportsReady and NAB provide career opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, through the delivery of an intensive Emerging Leaders program. The program is aimed at building the leadership capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander NAB staff. We are the largest provider of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment programs nationally for NAB.
 

 




AUSTRALIA POST

 

Australia Post and AFL SportsReady are committed to building the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent. In doing so, we developed the Executive Certificate in Professional Mentoring for 35 Indigenous Australia Post staff, designed to build on internal mentoring capacity within the company.
 


 

 

The following partners continue to come on board to help drive vision for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people.
