IMPACT Evaluation

Supporting Indigenous young people to succeed in school, work and life


IMPACT works with Indigenous students across Years 10, 11 and 12 to motivate and support them to complete their schooling, foster bold ambitions for their futures, and develop their capacity to contribute and lead change in their communities. IMPACT is the only out-of school Indigenous leadership program in Australia that works with students continuously over their final years of high school. Over the three years students undertake a range of extracurricular activities to attach them to school.
This report is presented in two sections. The first introduces IMPACT and provides some background about the importance of supporting and motivating students to succeed in their schooling. The second presents summary evaluation findings for 2014 (Years 10, 11 and 12).
