Titans stars Brian Kelly, Tyrone Roberts and Jonus Pearson today congratulated the five aspiring young leaders chosen to represent the Titans at the NRL All-Stars Indigenous Youth Leadership Summit next month on the Gold Coast.
Seth, Ella, Jack, Allira and Alicia are participants in the Titans Deadly Futures and NRL School to Work (S2W) programs, and were selected because of their demonstrated leadership within their schools and communities, as well as their commitment to their education.
The five Titans representatives will be among 65 students representing the 16 NRL clubs participating in the leadership and cultural camp, and will attend the All-Stars game on Saturday 22 February at Cbus Super Stadium.
Indigenous Titans stars Kelly, Roberts and Pearson were on hand today to present the new Titans representatives with their Club polo shirts.
Previous Youth Summit Titans representatives Cody, Sophie and Holly – the 2019 NRL Young Person of the Year – were also there to share their experiences of the week-long camp and encourage the new participants to do get involved in all the activities.
The S2W initiative is an education and employment program supported by the Australian Government and Gold Coast Titans that utilises the positive profile of rugby league to support and encourage young Indigenous youth to complete their schooling and successfully transition into further education or employment.
