About The National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academy
The National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academy (NASCA) is a not for profit organisation founded in 1995. We are 100% Aboriginal governed. Our vision is for a proud, prosperous, healthy Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people thrive.
NASCA uses the power of structured sports programs and cultural initiatives to harness the educational and health aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people. We address the root cause of inequality and use our Aboriginal knowledge and expertise to ensure young people stay strong in their culture and identity and are resilient in combating structural and systemic bias prevalent in Australia today.
We aim to:
Inspire students through Role Modelling and Mentorship
Develop Life skills
Increase school engagement & attendance
Strengthen Cultural Pride
Develop healthy life choices.
Our head office is located in Redfern, NSW, we currently work primarily in NSW and the NT but our volunteering opportunities are available to applicants nationally.
