For the third consecutive year, ALPA (Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation) has successfully facilitated a work experience program for students from East Arnhem Land. The primary goal of this program is to demonstrate to students that the skills they acquire in school have practical applications in the real world. Students gain valuable insights into various industries by connecting with stakeholders within their community and beyond, including those based in Darwin.

This year, the program welcomed 15 students, with 5 participants each from Ramingining, Galiwin’ku, and Gapuwiyak. These students were hosted by several organizations, including NAAJA, NLC, 1st Nations Broadcasting, NAAFLS, Larrakia Nation Aged Care, Minister Uibo, and the Australian Defence Force (ADF). We deeply appreciate their generosity and commitment to nurturing the next generation of community leaders.

 ALPA specifically hosted 4 students from Galiwin’ku: Farrah Walpulay, Jozanna Wurrandilngawuy, Abigale Garangaranbuy, and Shaylee Bukulatjpi. These young women were a pleasure to host, as they actively engaged with teams across our Darwin support office.Looking ahead, ALPA is already making plans for hosting students in 2025. If your business is interested in providing similar opportunities for students from East Arnhem Land, we welcome your involvement. Together, we can continue to support and empower youth across the region.
