In 2016, Monash University completed a comprehensive review of the Richmond Emerging Aboriginal Leadership (REAL) program. This review established the REAL program as the best-practice framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth leadership. Since the review, under the guidance of the community and further research, the KGI has extensively invested in the REAL program, including expanding delivery into regional Victoria and interstate.
The REAL program is evaluated using an Indigenous evaluation tool developed specifically for the KGI to measure impact in a culturally safe and appropriate way.
Based on the knowledge that to be well, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth need to connect with their body, mind, and culture.
REAL Healthy provides access to our Aligned Leisure facilities located in Eltham, Cardinia, Mildura, and Albury/Wodonga.
