Beyond the Broncos
BRISBANE Broncos star Anthony Milford has launched the 2018 Beyond the Broncos program at his old high school, St Peter Claver College in Riverview.
The Indigenous mentoring program aims to improve school attendance and Year 12 completion rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
Mr Milford spoke to students in a Q&A session alongside Alexia Baker from the Queensland Firebirds, about the importance of working hard, and how his effort and commitment to education not only translated to his NRL career, but also the completion of his Certificate IV in Youth Work.
“If I had someone mentoring me while I was going through high school it would have helped me out heaps,” Mr Milford said.
“The amount of time and effort you put in is what you get out of it.”
The Beyond the Broncos program ambassadors are set to visit 35 schools across QLD and NSW, returning each term to conduct youth development workshops aimed at educating and motivating young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Years 10 to 12.
