Glass Jar Australia Board Of Directors

Overseen by the Glass Jar Australia Board, Shooting Stars is an educational program that uses sport and other tools to encourage greater school engagement amongst young aboriginal girls and women. We empower Aboriginal girls in regional and remote communities to make informed choices about their education and employment journey, helping them strive for the stars. The program now engages more than 375 students across eight delivery sites, with 25% of participants improving attendance term on term, while 50% of participants maintain an average attendance rate of 80% or above.

Our Program Coordinators are inspiring Aboriginal women, who are responsible for the day-to-day management and implementation of the program, and our outcomes are measured and reported using an Indigenous evaluation protocol. Furthermore, the Program is a key driver in creating equality for female leaders and generational change, with 85% of its staff and 66% of its Board identifying as Aboriginal. Shooting Stars enjoys the backing of Netball WAs 95 years of history and experience in advancing local communities and empowering women and girls and leverages the reach and connections of netball to enhance the programs outcomes.
