Collingwood furthers its commitment to Indigenous Australians
Friday 20 October 2017
“We’re really proud to launch The Barrawarn Program website today, to further support the Collingwood Football Club’s work with Indigenous Australians,” said club President Eddie McGuire, this morning.
Barrawarn is the Wurundjeri word for Magpie, and the aim of the program is to empower Indigenous Australians through employment and educational opportunities.
The Barrawarn Program is at the heart of the club’s Indigenous partnerships, programs, activities and events, and the new website brings information about all the work the team do, together in one place.
“We hope people will visit the site, again and again, to check out new employment and training opportunities, the annual guernsey design competition, Reconciliation Action Plan news and everything else we’re up to here at Collingwood to support Indigenous Australians,” Eddie McGuire said.
