Who We Are

At Wanta Aboriginal Corporation, our vision is to be a driving force in eradicating the educational disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, ushering in a future where every young individual has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Since the establishment of the Wanta Academy program in October 2013, our dedication to this vision has remained unwavering. We envision a world where every Indigenous child in remote communities, like Yuendumu in Central Australia, has equal access to quality education, and where they are empowered to break through barriers and embrace their unique talents. Our staff, with their passion and commitment, will continue to work alongside upper primary and secondary students, nurturing their talents and ambition, elevating school attendance, and fostering educational excellence. We see a future where every young person can seamlessly transition to promising vocational opportunities, driven by their newfound knowledge and self-confidence. Through the provision of sport, recreation, and cultural activities, we aim to create well-rounded, empowered individuals who not only excel academically but also have a deep connection to their culture and community. Our vision is a future where educational equality is not just a dream but a reality for Indigenous youth across Australia.
