KARI Community

KARI Foundation works to strengthen the Indigenous community.

Our range of community programs promote Indigenous growth, skill development and confidence building. We believe in supporting the Indigenous community to become self-sufficient and strong.

KARI Leadership Program

Designed to assist high-level Aboriginal or non-Aboriginal people who work across Aboriginal programs. The program personally challenges and grows quality individuals so they can optimise their achievements. The aim of the program is to provide participants with the opportunity to develop their personal and professional skills further, thereby enabling them to make more informed decisions to achieve better outcomes for the Indigenous community. Based on cutting-edge leadership frameworks, the program contents and processes reflect the latest in leadership development globally. The program consists of four full-day workshops, five webinars and three individual coaching sessions.
