Dragons youth ambassador to perform at NRL grand final

Zipporah Corser-Anu is a Year 11 student at the Wollongong High School of Performing Arts.Through her participation in NRL programs, Zipporah has now been given the opportunity to perform in front of the NRL grand final crowd, where the Dragons NRL Women's Premiership team feature.

This is a great example of NRL programs creating opportunities for our young people; the NRL School to Work Program (S2W) is a great example of this.

S2W is an education and employment program that utilises the positive profile of the game of rugby league to support and encourage young Indigenous Australians to complete their schooling and successfully transition into further education or employment.

Corser-Anu joined the S2W program in 2018 and represented the St George Illawarra Dragons at the 2019 NRL All Stars Indigenous Youth Leadership Summit, where she was successful in winning the role of Indigenous Youth Leadership Summit ambassador.

The ambassador role gave the students an opportunity to be involved in promoting the youth summit to future students, build a strong network and further develop their leadership skills through opportunities within the NRL and partners.
