Our Story Yalari provides and supports Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities and towns throughout Australia to gain access to a first-class secondary education through scholarships to attend some of Australia’s leading boarding schools.
Established in 2005, Yalari now supports 180 children around Australia enrolled at schools in 34 partnership schools in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory. Yalari was founded by Indigenous educator Waverley Stanley and his wife Llew Mullins.
Waverley’s own experience of attending boarding school at Toowoomba Grammar School over 20 years ago started him on the Yalari journey. Yalari draws its’ support from individuals, companies, philanthropic foundations and Government Departments.
