Alcoa is a finalist in the 5th Annual Australian Mining Prospect Awards for its commitment to Indigenous education.

Alcoa has partnered with the Clontarf Foundation in a bid to keep Indigenous boys at school until the end of year 12.

The Alcoa Foundation has contributed more than $300,000 to help launch a new football academy at Gilmore College in Kwinana Western Australia, which will enhance the life skills, health, wellbeing and educational prospects of young Aboriginal male students.

The Alcoa Foundation’s contribution is also aiding the expansion of the existing south west academy, creating opportunities for more boys from Bunbury, Collie, Harvey and Pinjarra to join the already flourishing football program.
