Royal Life Saving WA’s Talent Pool team worked in partnership with the Town of Port Hedland to facilitate a school holiday program at the JD Hardie Youth and Community Hub in South Hedland during the recent April school holidays. 

Led by a group of Talent Pool graduates, students in the local community spent the two weeks engaging in a range of activities, including 3v3 basketball, soccer, dodgeball, AFL and multisport. The Talent Pool crew also assisted in the delivery of cricket workshops run by Cricket WA.

Thanks to the ongoing support of our principal community partner BHP, Royal Life Saving WA’s Talent Pool program provides a springboard for Aboriginal youth to gain employment in the aquatic and recreation industry. The program aims to engage young Aboriginal people by providing skills development and employment opportunities in a fun environment surrounded by friends. 

Talent Pool recruits can gather a portfolio of achievements and qualifications, undertaking a range of courses to set them up for success in obtaining employment in the aquatic industry. By partnering with community stakeholders such as the Town of Port Hedland, Royal Life Saving WA can generate real employment opportunities for Talent Pool participants. 

With a successful school holiday program delivered by Talent Pool graduates to children in South Hedland, we can’t wait to see what opportunities they excel in next! Read more about the impact our Talent Pool Program is having on Aboriginal youth at the link below.
