All Dragons Community programs are designed to suit the complex multicultural demographic that is our community.
In schools, our cultural programs include health and fitness mentoring programs in selected schools with a high percentage of indigenous students.
A number of Dragons Community's Cultural programs are made possible thanks to the Indigenous All-Stars funding.
Myimbarr Learning Centre:
Dragons players assist AIME (Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience) mentors at the Illawarra Aboriginal Corporation Cultural Centre throughout the year.
The players and mentors encourage the kids to develop a love of learning through the weekly meetings.

In conjunction with the University of Wollongong and the Illawarra Aboriginal Corporation, the Dragons to Pathways Employment program is a school-based, two year traineeship for Year 10, 11 and 12 students in our community.
