Our National Program involves our partnership with the Cathy Freeman Foundation and in particular, their Horizons Program.

Each year 75 students experience one of five trips to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Canberra. The Horizons Program is designed according to the age group which ranges from Year 5 to Year 12, and balances fun and new experiences of city life with educational opportunities focused on positive mentoring and goal setting. The trips for secondary school students are focused on post school pathways.

The exposure to various workplaces and corporate engagements, mixed with mentoring sessions and workshops with respected Indigenous role models extends and inspires students about what is possible for their future.

Cottage by the Sea is proud to be part of this program.
