NRL Cowboys House provides supported accommodation for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from some of North Queensland’s most remote and educationally disadvantaged communities, enabling them to access quality secondary education opportunities in Townsville.
In 2019, we piloted the Variety Learning Centre at NRL Cowboys House Girls Campus in Townsville. For 30 girls, from 13 remote Indigenous communities, leaving home to start high school hundreds of kilometres away, the experience was life-changing. Variety continues to partner with NRL Cowboys House to give more Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander kids the opportunity to reach their full potential through the Variety Learning Centre, which provides after-school tutoring and workplace-readiness programs to help these girls succeed at school and once they graduate.
