I was inspired and motivated every single day of my placement and It was truly incredible to have a taste of what the real working world could be like. It’s the learning, growing and experience you take away.​

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.​
