The mission of The Girls Academy is to ‘Develop a Girl – Change a Community’. We have been partnering with Role Models and Leaders Australia since January 2016 in delivering this inspiring program, which aims to reduce the barriers that prevent Aboriginal girls from completing their education and reaching their highest potential.

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre (SPPT) is a driving force in the contemporary puppet theatre landscape in Australia who have been producing puppet theatre works for children and their families for over 30 years. We began sponsoring SPPT back in 2016 to bring the magic of puppetry to students in the Gascoyne and Midwest, providing students the opportunity to engage with the arts to help them learn, grow and become positive forces in their communities. Exposure to the arts improves student’s sense of enjoyment, purpose and identity and can positively change the direction of young people’s lives by engaging their brain, body and emotions. SPPT and Horizon Power believe every student from schools in low socio-economic areas of Western Australia should have access to their work.
Youth Focus is an independent West Australian not for profit organisation that supports vulnerable young people and their families by offering free unlimited professional counselling in schools and offices throughout the state.
Their mission is to put a stop to youth suicide and a key strategy in this is the provision of mental health training across the broad spectrum, including the workplace, community and education sectors.
In addition to counselling support for young people and their families, Youth Focus has implemented a coordinated mental health program in high schools across WA. Funding from the Mental Health Commission has allowed them to reach up to 40 schools across the state. Due to the success of this program they are receiving direct requests from many other schools.
The aim of the program is to improve awareness of mental health issues so that parents, teachers and friends are able to identify and assist with mental health issues young people may be experiencing and young people are able to understand mental health issues and seek support and help.
