Stars Foundation 

The Stars Foundation was established to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls complete their education and make successful transitions to further study or employment.
In 2019, over 900 girls from the Northern Territory, Queensland and Victoria are receiving holistic school-based support in a safe environment that celebrates culture and understands the challenges the girls are facing. Stars Foundation partners with schools to allow the girls to remain living at home while they complete their education.

In 2018, 97% of senior Stars students completed Year 12 – an outstanding outcome when you consider that the national Indigenous Year 12 completion is just 47%. We also saw over 90% of 2017 Stars graduates transition to higher-education or employment - compared to the national Indigenous rate of just 41%.

Attendance rates in all locations were above baseline and regional averages, in some instances closing the attendance gap by over 50%.
