Nallei Jerring Koori Leadership Project

What is Nallei Jerring Koori Leadership Project?

The Western Bulldogs’ Nallei-Jerring (join and unite) Koori Youth Leadership Project aims to support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait islander young people, by providing opportunities through the Western Bulldogs as a way of encouraging leadership within the local Aboriginal community.

The Western Bulldogs Football Club is used as a vehicle to inspire, educate and encourage Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait islander young people to become future leaders in Victoria's West Aboriginal community. The young people are provided with an exciting range of life, cultural and sport experiences in which to learn and develop from.

The Nallei Jerring Program offers practical and theory based activities designed to enhance young people with cultural knowledge, leadership, teamwork, resilience, communication, support networks and connection to community.

Who are we looking for?

The Nallei Jerring Program is open to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander males and females aged between 13-15 years who live within local government areas across Victoria's West.

We are looking for self-motivated Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait islander young people with the potential to become future leaders in their community. You do not need to be athletic or even play sport to be considered.

What you can expect from the Nallei Jerring Koori Leadership Project?

The Nallei Jerring Koori Leadership Project will offer a broad range of activities designed to meet the various needs of the group includes: Cultural excursions, practical team building activities, leadership from respected Aboriginal Elders and community members, AFL match visits and much more!

The program caters for up to 25 young people from the local Aboriginal community who meet regularly to develop skills and behaviours that will deliver lifelong benefits to the young person and their community.

The young people are supervised at all times by experienced staff that create engaging and safe environments for young people to learn and challenge themselves.
