Stand Tall in Strathfield South High School
We were excited to launch our new partnership with South Strathfield High School recently to deliver the Stand Tall program with students from diverse backgrounds. The students have been enthusiastic and engaged with the program as we have promoted positive inclusion and diversity. The young people have been able to have some great group discussions and we are looking forward to continuing the program for the rest of the year with the young men and women of SSHS.
The Stand Tall initiative is a basketball and leadership program for young people, with a focus on Indigenous and Culturally Diverse groups, including newly arrived refugees. The initiative aims to deliver a Stand Tall strength based program to develop life and leadership skills, using basketball as a means of engagement and providing an impacting experience that inspires participants to set goals and be motivated about their own future. The programs include both on and off court activities including basketball skills & drills.
Charity Bounce is a not for profit organization that exists to inspire positive change to overcome disadvantage for individuals and communities. With a focus on Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders and Culturally Diverse communities, including newly arrived refugees we aim to move people toward a more positive future through the development of sports, the arts, health, education and employment focused social programs. The programs are delivered in partnership with professional athletes to motivate change and inspire.
