APA’s Community Investment program … Building brighter futures
Building Brighter Futures is APA’s Community Investment Program. It connects our business and our people to the communities in which we work and live by supporting initiatives to improve the future work and life prospects for vulnerable Australians.
Our community partnerships with three indigenous organisations reflect our commitment to help build brighter futures for indigenous Australians. APA supports:-
- NAPCAN Aboriginal Girls Circle: a residential camp program to build resilience, self-esteem, social connections and confidence for Aboriginal girls in regional and remote areas
- Clontarf Foundation: a program based around Aboriginal boys’ passion for football, to improve the education, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal men
- Exodus Foundation: a literacy program to teach functional literacy to disadvantaged children (including indigenous) with severely compromised reading ability
Building Brighter Futures also supports a number of causes close to the hearts of APA people through our annual employee community event calendar, by capped matching of funds raised by APA employees. Supported events include:
More planned for the future These initiatives are the first phase of our longer-term plan for a broader community investment program for APA.
