Who is Shooting Stars?

Shooting Stars is a school-based engagement program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women. It's an initiative of Glass Jar Australia, driving the vision: Empowered Aboriginal girls and women. 

The program offers advocacy, support, opportunities and the tools and resources that open the door to self-determination, empowering each young woman to reach her full potential.

Program staff, most of whom are Aboriginal women, walk alongside Shooting Stars participants throughout their schooling journeys, encouraging the development of confidence, cultural identity, positive relationships and positive wellbeing.  

No two communities are the same, so the Shooting Stars program is place-based, and community-led. Working in collaboration with our host schools, localised steering committees, community members and the participants themselves, we are able to tailor program delivery at each Shooting Stars site to ensure it is relevant, responsive and truly empowering.
