Future Footprints Program

Future Footprints Logo

The Future Footprints program is an initiative of AISWA that began in 2004. The program supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who are attending 17 participating schools in Perth. 

The primary goal of the program is to ensure the engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students with the education system, to enhance their sense of belonging and self-worth, and provide students with the confidence, knowledge and skills to succeed. Future Footprints is based on an Aboriginal Family Model, of peer support and leadership.

Future Footprints is a well-established partnership between students, schools, parents, communities and sponsors. The broad aim of the program is to improve educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, and enhance their opportunities post-school to further education, training, and/or employment.

Each year Future Footprints coordinates a number of initiatives and events that bring together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from participating schools. Future Footprints has also assisted schools in establishing their own school-based programs, which form an important part of the schools' culture and foster great pride within the Independent School community.
