Deadly Expo providing Future Opportunities

There was a buzz of activity around Mineral Resources Park last week, as our Year 11 and 12 Deadly Sista Girlz took part in the annual Deadly Futures Careers Expo.

Joined by 25 vendors representing various industry and tertiary organisations, our girls had the opportunity to forge meaningful connections and learn more about the range of future pathways available to them.

Vendors included Western Power, Alcoa, Water Corporation, Mineral Resources and many more.

Following the expo, our students were joined by mentors from our Employment team who took them through mock job interviews and job application tips.

Creating future pathways

As part of Deadly Sista Girlz, participants are equipped with the tools they need to flourish both during and after high school. Whether they intend to enter the workforce or go on to further study, our mentors guide and support them to create an individual pathway plan to kick-start their career.

The program works with our students to incorporate pathways into our delivery sessions, assist them with school-based traineeships, work experience opportunities, casual employment opportunities and assist with transitioning for life after school whether that be higher education, training, or employment.  Deadly Futures is an integral event, exposing our students to the numerous different opportunities available and get them thinking about the different pathways they can take during or post-school.

Deadly Futures is one of several career-building initiatives available to Deadly Sista Girlz throughout their schooling, including other events like the School-Based Traineeships Expo and the Deadly Leadership Summit.

Deadly Sista Girlz is an holistic education, empowerment and healthy lifestyle program for Indigenous girls operating in 18 schools across Australia.  Deadly Sista Girlz is supported by the National Indigenous Australians Agency, with support from corporate partners. Find out more.
