In January 2019, Carlton Football Club welcomed nine new La Trobe University interns to the Community Education Programs Team.
The Community Education Program’s team is responsible for delivering the Carlton Respects Schools Program.
During Term 1, close to 1000 students in grades five and six, from 12 different schools in Melbourne’s metropolitan northern corridor participated in a newly developed Carlton Respects Schools Program.
Carlton Respects Community Education Program aims to increase gender equality for the prevention of violence against women.
Through an interactive learning environment, the program focuses primarily on:
- Values & Teamwork
- Challenging Gender Stereotypes
- Taking Action
The newly developed Primary School program has a direct link with Carlton Respects Secondary School program which has been delivered in schools since 2016.
