At Rork Projects, we are proud to support the education and career pathways of Indigenous youth in Australia. Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting a work experience program, for Yalari Graduate Scott Taat.
Yalari is a remarkable organisation offering secondary education scholarships at leading Australian boarding schools for Indigenous children. Through this program Scott attended Scott’s College in Warwick, graduating at the end of 2022.
We are delighted to have had him as a part of our team over the last 5 weeks and we hope that the experience has given him an insight into the construction industry and the many opportunities it offers.
During his time in the program, Scott obtained valuable, practical construction experience by actively participating in projects we are delivering in Brisbane. He worked with our team to successfully complete the Queensland Government Department of Education fit-out project, which is being carried out in partnership with IA Design.
We believe that providing education and career opportunities to Indigenous youth is essential to building a more equitable and inclusive society. Our partnership with Yalari helps to provide young Indigenous Australians with access to quality education and opportunities to excel in their chosen fields.
With the support of Yalari, Rork Projects’ Wa Initiative continues to champion Indigenous Education, believing that high quality education is a fundamental building block that everyone should have access to. In conjunction with Yalari, the Wa Initiative has supported Nevaeh to attend boarding school at Clayfield College in Brisbane.
As Nevaeh reaches her senior years of education, becoming a leader in both her school and within the Yalari community, we have shifted our focus to not just what we can do to support education, but also what we can do to foster successful pathways after school.
We are grateful for the opportunity to have hosted Scott with his work experience, and we hope that his time with us has been valuable in shaping his career goals. We encourage other businesses to get involved with the Yalari Program and support Indigenous education and career pathways.
