The Deadly Sista Girlz program is recognised as a leader enabling First Nations women to be culturally proud and thriving.
The Deadly Sista Girlz program aims to influence the empowerment of our young First Nations women through a tailored educational program driven with a holistic approach, led by our First Nations women.
The Program focuses on building self-esteem and confidence, pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identity, having practical cultural contribution in the community, positive social interactions, building relationships based on mutual respect, encouraging active self-development and yarning about sexual and women’s health, drug and alcohol abuse, road safety, healthy nutrition, financial literacy and healthy relationships.
Mentors offer a stable environment and aim to engage, educate, and empower girls to make positive choices for their health and futures. Participants benefit from having trusted mentors present and available on the school grounds, helping to build routine, encourage better relationships with the wider community, instil confidence and achieve goals.
The Deadly Sista Girlz program is offered through the Waalitj Foundation. More information on the program and the Waalitj Foundation can be found here.
