Stars Foundation’s mission is to support and enable Indigenous girls and young women to make active
choices towards realising their full potential in all aspects of their development and wellbeing. Stars aims
to break the cycle of intergenerational disadvantage for Indigenous young women in Australia through quality
in-school mentoring programs that improve education, employment, health, and wellbeing outcomes.
Supre Foundation’s partnership with Stars Foundation began in 2021 we have since committed $500,000 to
supporting Indigenous girls and young women aged 16 to 18 years within the Northern Territory, a critical
area needing support and funding.
Investing in First Nations young women and providing opportunities for them to choose their path and fulfil
their potential, creates a powerful ripple effect and an enduring legacy for Australia. By supporting Stars,
Supre Foundation is helping to positively impact the lives of Indigenous girls and young women, their
families and communities.
