LEARN EARN LEGEND 2012
In September 2012, Dare to Lead joined other partners with DEEWR to facilitate the Learn Earn Legend Parliament House Work Experience event in Canberra.
More details will be posted shortly.
ASSETS is an exciting and challenging opportunity for Year 10 Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander students to immerse themselves in a unique 9 day
science and cultural program. It is a national, annual program, fully
funded for all participants. ASSETS
is conducted by experienced educational leaders with a strong
understanding of duty of care obligations. Accommodation is provided at a
purpose built facility used to support Aboriginal students from the far
north of South Australia studying at a secondary school in Adelaide.
Staff at this facility are well experienced in caring for Aboriginal
young people living away from home.
Participants will work with practising scientists and research academics
in an engaging, exciting and very much "hands on" exploration into
cutting edge science. They will also be challenged, and supported, to
think about themselves, their culture and their ambitions. Professor
Peter Buckskin from UniSA, who is also involved in a number of national
Indigenous education programs, is Patron of ASSETS and conducts the cultural/leadership componenets of the program.
LEARN EARN LEGEND 2011
In September 2011, Dare to Lead joined other partners with DEEWR to facilitate the Learn Earn Legend Parliament House Work Experience event in Canberra. Of the 100+ Year 11/12 students from across the country who attended, more than half of these were sourced by Dare to Lead (and most of the other students are also from schools who are Dare to Lead Coalition members, too).
The students spent time at Parliament House , Canberra, working alongside Ministers and MPs; later in their week, they worked in a government agency, all of this to gain insights into the opportunities of working in government.
This is the second year that the program has run and plans are already being considered for 2012.
