Red Dust Role Models

 

Description

Red Dust Role Models is a non-profit health promotion charity and deductible gift recipient that seeks to improve the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged young people in remote communities around Australia.

They focus on nutrition, hygiene, substance use and physical activity. Red Dust utilises positive role models from the fields of sport, music, art, health and business to deliver programs which encourage healthy lifestyle decisions and promotes education as a path to personal development, employment and readiness for community leadership. Red Dust delivers health promotion programs that are based on six key outcomes:

Red Dust is committed to decreasing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians in terms of health, education and opportunities to fulfill human potential. Red Dust Role Models has over 20 years experience working in remote Indigenous communities.
