Inaugural REAL Empowered Program delivers its first graduate class

October 1, 2018

The Korin Gamadji Institute (KGI) recently celebrated its first graduate class of the inaugural REAL Empowered Program, delivered in partnership with A.G. Coombs.

Through our partnership with Richmond Football Club, A.G. Coombs extends its support to KGI and are a proud presenting partner for one of four KGI Richmond Emerging Aboriginal Leadership (REAL) Programs.

A group of 19 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Year 11 and 12 committed three weekends over three months at the Swinburne Centre, Punt Road Oval in Melbourne to participate in the program focusing on career and further education pathways.

A.G. Coombs collaborated with the participants to develop key themes and a name for the launch of their new Indigenous Pathways Program, which provides opportunities for Indigenous employment in the construction industry.

A.G. Coombs would like to congratulate the participants who graduated on Saturday, August 18 in the Maurice Rioli Room of the Richmond Football Club and shared their REAL journey and personal stories, highlighting the impact of KGI’s programs and the vast achievements, challenges and aspirations of our emerging Aboriginal leaders.
