It has been a huge year of achievements for "Titans Together".
Established in 2020, the Gold Coast Titans foundation was built with the aim to Care, Include, Unite and Inspire.
As the 12-month anniversary approaches, the numbers show exactly how the foundation has used the popularity and profile of rugby league and the Gold Coast Titans to create a better life for our people in the community and how it has driven positive change.
Titans Together works across four pillars: Inclusion, Indigenous, Junior Sport and Schools.
The Titans have established three social inclusion programs and two social inclusion teams (physical disability and intellectual disability), with more than 35 players part of the PDRL and IDRL programs.
From supporting the Disabled Surfing Association of Australia to Down Syndrome Queensland, with the Down Syndrome run-out event and Touch Football specialised, Titans Together works to include all within the Gold Coast community.
Almost 8000 junior players across the Titans catchment are enjoying rugby league, with those players spread across 29 junior rugby league clubs.
The Gold Coast Titans are committed to working with junior rugby league clubs and schools across our catchment to build a community of young people who are dedicated to rugby league, sportsmanship, teamwork and fun.
In schools, Titans Together has helped foster 185 teacher ambassadors, 114 Deadly Futures and School to Work students and has worked in running 4 high school rugby league competitions.
In the Indigenous space, 31% of the Gold Coast Titans squad are of First Nations decent. 350 hours have been spent creating our 'Stretch' Reconciliation Action plan, with 20 members (including current players) part of the RAP working group.
It's been a huge first year for Titans Together, with the foundation planning to grow even further in 2021.
As we celebrate the one year anniversary, the Titans would also like to thank the Gold Coast community who have raised over $100,000 in support of Titans Together programs.
