We believe that more can be done to improve education and employment outcomes for students in remote Australia, particularly Aboriginal girls and young women. 

The Girls from Oz (g-oz) program, uses a tried and tested performing arts engagement model developed over 30 years by the Australian School of Performing Arts, to engage and re-engage females living in some of the most at-risk communities in Australia.
