The Aurora Project

Upon reflection, the internship experience has left an indelible mark on me. I have learned some valuable lessons that I wouldn’t have had the time to learn otherwise. In hindsight, I have had a positive experience: appreciating the lessons learned, skills gained, supervision received, and the professional relationships formed.

About TAI

The Aspiration Initiative (TAI) is a joint initiative of the Aurora Project, the Charlie Perkins Trust and the University of Canberra. We are broadening the conversation about what is possible for Indigenous Australians in relation to academic achievement – from school attendance and minimum benchmarks to academic excellence in Australia and on the world stage.

We are excited to  announce the launch of The Aspiration Initiative website and invite you to join us as we broaden the conversation from school attendance and minimum benchmarks to academic excellence not only in Australia but on the world stage.​
