CYLP are creating a strong partnership with Rio Tinto in Weipa. Our first group of Secondary Academic Leaders joined students from Lockhart River for a four-day Career Engagement Program.

Ziphoria, Keilen and Jaidyn are interested in career pathways in the mining and resource sector and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to gain insight into mine operations and the sheer variety of professions employed on site. The students had the opportunity to meet professionals in a range of roles at the Weipa sites, including a number of Indigenous employees

CYLP looks forward to building on our partnership with Rio Tinto, as they offer our Academic Leaders opportunities for vacation work, hands-on work experience, volunteer work in land rehabilitation, and scholarship opportunities to support their tertiary studies.
