Goldfields Girl is an expansion of the high profile Kimberley Girl Program now in its 14th year and Pilbara Girl now in its 7th year. This project was introduced to the community as a valuable initiative targeting young Indigenous women between the ages of 16 and 25. Structured workshops and showcase events address contemporary issues helping participants to overcome the impact of social, economic and isolation disadvantages and bringing the community together in a celebratory capacity.

The main aim of the Goldfields Girl Program is to instigate positive change in the personal and professional capacity of young Indigenous women, directing them to make positive life choices and forge constructive pathways.

After participating in the Goldfields Girl program we hope participants are left with increased self-awareness and are exposed to new and different life styles and opportunities, returning to their communities as positive role models among their peers and family members.
