NRL Community empowers youth
Close to 250 students from eight high schools across Sydney & Newcastle, came together to celebrate the completion of the NRL’s current ‘In League In Harmony’ program, a six-week program conducted throughout term three.
Students celebrated the occasion by participating in an end of term celebration gala day, participating in a range of activities, including a Harmony Walk, and touch rugby league matches.
NRL Head of Government and Community Relations, Jaymes Boland-Rudder said the program had progressed in impact and exposure over several years.
"The message of social cohesion and recognition amongst multiple nationalities and communities is an important one," Mr Boland-Rudder said.
The day was a complete success with all the participants putting their newly learned values and skills into practice.
For the first time, youth ambassadors have had the chance to run the In League In Harmony program. The program aims to develop the leaders of tomorrow.
