OUR MISSION

OUR MISSION

To develop lifetime cross-cultural relationships for Australia’s youth – unite and empower the next generation of Australia’s leaders today through educational exchange programs to ensure a stronger more dynamic Australia tomorrow:

  • Educate students from urban areas with knowledge of and respect for the oldest living culture on Earth, Australia’s Aboriginal cultures, and the spectacular environment of Arnhem Land.
  • Provide educational and cultural links between schools in Arnhem Land and schools across Australia.
  • Bring sustainable economic activities to the Aboriginal Homelands; making these traditional lands more attractive for Yolŋu to return to their country, critical lands for the preservation of their culture.
  • Strengthen the broader Arnhem Land economy through job creation and also increasing the tourism profile of East Arnhem Land.
  • Improve the utilisation of East Arnhem’s assets by repurposing existing facilities and giving them a new lease on life.

    We were inspired and searched the country for a suitable location to establish a permanent 'Kids to Culture' campus and a social enterprise to sponsor Aboriginal youth education programs sustainably over the long term.
