A commitment to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth will be the cornerstone of a new three-year partnership between the Richmond Football Club and national tier-one construction company Probuild.
Probuild will work closely with Richmond’s centre for Indigenous youth, the Korin Gamadji Institute, and through the new partnership, will be a Presenting Partner of the highly successful Laguntas and recently established Boorimul programs.
In its fifth year, the Laguntas program provides an alternative talent pathway for Indigenous footballers aged between 15 and 18 years old. The support provided by Probuild will allow a similar women’s program to be established, the Boorimul program.
Probuild Managing Director Simon Gray said he was proud of the opportunities thepartnership will bring.
“We’re incredibly excited to be entering into partnership with Richmond Football Club to support their Indigenous football programs. The fact that our support is allowing the Boorimul Program to be established makes me exceptionally proud and it will be fantastic to see another AFL Women’s talent pathway developed for aspiring, young Indigenous footballers,” said Mr Gray.
