Turning young dreamers into Champions

Sport & Activities

Unstructured play is key in learning and developing for all children. Sport can be a true motivator in building ambitious young children with positive goals and visions.

Education programs

Education gives people confidence and choices about their future. At AGF we believe education is the single biggest opportunity to empower young Aboriginal kids.

Creative pathways

Art offers an alternate pathway in a young person’s life for freedom and expression. It emboldens children to create something from nothing and develop their voice and their ideas.
