Robbie Miniter

Family Background: Proud Noongar man from the Goreng people of the Wargyl Caip in the Great Southern. My mother was born in Mount Barker, my Father was born in Gnowangerup and my home land is through the Stirling Ranges of the South West region of WA.

Career Highlights:

  • Achievements working at the local Shire of Gnowangerup since I was 18 years of age, including supervising several major construction projects, sporting fields and contracting main roads. 
  • Becoming the youngest member of the WA local government supervisors association
  • 2003 Winning the WA Community Building Leadership Award
  • 11 years as Senior Coach (and player) for the Gnowangerup Football Club and currently coaching three teams. I also have the club record with 106 goals in 12 games.
  • I am most proud of my wife and kids

Job Role: Sports Development Manager

Location: Great Southern, WA

Describe a typical days work at the Foundation: 

A normal day for me is consulting with community organisations to improve opportunities for local Aboriginal people to build capacity. I also help local sporting clubs become more aware of the sport participation level and with this help to develop strategies working with the local sports clubs and associations to increase local Aboriginal sports participation. I also deliver the Deadly Brother Boyz program in Kojonup, where we deliver strategies to help young people succeed in life as they are influenced to make healthy life choices.

Favourite part of being a mentor: Seeing the changes in young people to become better and doing well by respecting themselves and their peers.

Personal inspiration: My mum has played a major part of who I am, as well as my dad for telling me he believed on me from a very young age. My family who helped me regain my life after a very cloudy start.

Quote to live by: “Be yourself, respect others and make the most of your opportunities as we are all human and can achieve what we want if we let us.”
