The Indigenous Youth Leadership Program

Working in partnership with St Patrick's College, the IYLP is run by The Smith Family, with funding support through the National Indigenous Australians Agency. The Government-funded program aims to close the gaps in Indigenous educational disadvantage by creating greater access to additional education choice for Indigenous students, particularly those from remote and very remote areas of the country.

In addition to helping Indigenous students achieve their educational aspirations, the IYLP supports the development of positive role models and leaders to inspire other Indigenous students.

If you have any questions, please contact the IYLP Manager, Leanne Smith, by email or telephone +61 8 8224 1402. Application for admission to St Patrick's College must be made at the same time as the application for an IYLP Scholarship.
