The Fullaship is a 12-month program open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Young People who are on a journey to become community leaders, role models and mentors. The Fullaship provides personal and professional development pathways for young people to continue their own journey of cultural, personal, and professional growth and development. Seven young people were awarded inaugural Fullaships in December, 2021.
The participants of the Fullaship Program, ‘Fellows’, will experience a range of both virtual and in-person session. They will share lived experience, build connections and networks, and create and experiences that aim to challenge, encourage and inspire them to achieve their own goals and aspirations. Through this, recipients will receive individualised, group mentoring and coaching to enhance their development in the areas of interest, including but not limited to:
- Social and Cultural Entrepreneurship
- Social Advocacy and Policy
- Academia and Research
- Community Development
The Fullaship program is tailored to each Fellow’s individual interest and aspirations and is built on four main pillars: Mentoring, Leadership and Development, Pathways, and Advocacy. The Fullaship Program has a strong focus on building self-determination, wellbeing, community and cultural support and connection.
