    The Richmond Emerging Aboriginal Leadership (REAL) program recruits Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students aged 14–17 to develop: a stronger sense of cultural identity and an improved awareness of family connections and Indigenous culture; a greater understanding about the importance of personal and community health, the incidence of key health issues, and the actions that can be taken improve personal health; a greater understanding of the career and personal development pathways available to them; and the agency to participate in their community (e.g. through community events, clubs, school programs and/or leadership roles) as confident and proud community leaders. This case study provides an overview and two challenges.
