WHY WE EXIST
One for all and all for one, is the way we play at Hawthorn.
Sport is the ultimate vehicle to facilitate sustainable social and cultural change within our community and we embrace this unique opportunity to make a real difference. Our community programs and partnerships empower us to develop greater opportunities for engagement, inclusion, equality and diversity whilst fostering a culture of collaboration.
INDIGENOUS ENGAGEMENT AND EMPOWERMENT
Close the gap in Indigenous health and education by delivering programs that focus on improving the education, mental health and social/emotional well-being of Indigenous people. Our aim is to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to reach their full potential.
MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Increase the awareness of mental health issues and bring about behavioural change by delivering education programs that equip young Australians with the knowledge of, and tools required, to tackle anxiety and depression so they can help themselves and others.
Develop programs that empower people of all abilites, genders and cultural backgrounds to collaborate and integrate, creating a sense of equality and belonging. We work to create a more accepting and inclusive community and environment.
