What we do  

Ganbina is Australia’s most successful Indigenous school to work transition program.  

Our approach is unique. We mentor young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, from the ages of five to 25 years old, to make sure they gain the education, skills and life experiences they need to unlock their full potential. Our program includes learning support, life skills training, cultural appreciation, career guidance and financial assistance.

Our goals are:

Short term:
Ganbina empowers young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to achieve their full potential and thus live rewarding, fulfilling and independent lives as adults.

Medium term:
Ganbina graduates act as powerful ‘Agents of change’ in their own communities. They inspire and lead their families, friends and communities to unlock their own potential through education, training and employment.

Long term:
Education, training and employment become widespread in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. As a result, our young people achieve true social and economic equality with all Australians.
