The AFL Community Ambassador program was established in 2013, with the aim to engage Multicultural Communities through a network of dedicated volunteers while using Australian Rules Football as a vehicle of engagement and inclusion. 

 


The role of an AFL Community Ambassador

The role of an AFL Community Ambassador has grown and expanded over a journey. Through strong partnerships with the AFL and its affiliated State bodies, Ambassadors have supported initiatives that have seen our game become more welcoming, accessible and inclusive for all Australians. 
Through the AFL Community Ambassador program, Ambassadors have undertaken the following roles and responsibilities:

  1. Promotions of Football in Multicultural Communities
  2. Providing Cultural education and advice
  3. Assisting local Community Football clubs 
  4. Activating key Multicultural festivals and AFL match day experiences
  5. Involved in Coaching and Umpiring pathways

AFL Community Ambassador Photo Competition - WINNER

Mark Robinson - Victoria

This photo was taken at the conclusion of our Glen Waverley Secondary College 'National Reconciliation Week' fundraising drive, to support the Barrawarn Program and their Indigenous Education and Employment initiatives. The students in the photo are members of our GWSC GIANTS 'Multicultural AFL Program' who organised, promoted and ran our awareness campaigns and fundraisers throughout 'NRW'. Together our students assisted our College community to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures (including sessions on the Mungo Youth Project, Indigenous foods, Marngrook, Stone Tool Knapping, The Barrawarn Program & Indigenous Languages), whilst raising over $1700 for the Barrawarn Program. This will enable the Barrawarn Program to empower young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through employment and education opportunities, as well as tackling disadvantage through increased economic participation and development within Indigenous communities.
