How education can unleash potential and produce transformative outcomes

AIEF General Manager, Strategy and Policy, Renée Coffey discusses the power of education to change the course of a young person’s life at TEDx Ipswich.

What one intervention can change the course of a young person’s life? Renee Coffey has worked towards Reconciliation and closing the gap for over half her life. Ten years ago she left a career in government marketing and communications to work full-time for the cause she is most passionate about. She is now a senior leader with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation – a not for profit organisation that empowers Indigenous children to build a brighter future for themselves and for the nation. Renee has seen first-hand what it takes to enable a young person to transform their own life and the lives of their family and community.

Being part of the AIEF Mentor Program has given me the opportunity to mentor and guide a student with great potential. It's really encouraging to know that my student appreciates the support and I'm looking forward to being there to watch him grow from strength to strength on his journey through life after school.
