Centre for Road Safety

Adam Goodes talks about road safety to talent camp members.

Inspiring future leaders

Since 2014, the Adam Goodes Talent Program has given more than 100 Indigenous boys aged from 11 to 17 the opportunity to attend development camps on leadership, role modelling and AFL skills.

Our partnership with AFL NSW/ACT Indigenous Programs aims to provide young Aboriginals attending the Adam Goodes camps with road safety knowledge and understanding, inspiring them to become role models in their communities.

Participants at the camps have been selected from across NSW, including the South Coast, North Coast, Riverina, Sydney, Western Sydney, Moree and Broken Hill areas.

Road safety workshops

At the camps, we deliver workshops on road safety, including messages on the Get Licensed, Get Legal, Get Work program, raising awareness about the importance of obtaining and holding a driver licence. Other road safety workshops at the camps include:

  • Speeding
  • Drink driving
  • Pedestrians
  • Distraction

Video competition

A road safety video competition encourages camp participants to develop their own short videos, filmed in their school or community. The videos are judged by a panel, with the winner receiving a visit from Adam Goodes to their school or community to promote the program and road safety messages. Wayne Freeman, of Gundagai High School (pictured right with Adam Goodes), was a recent competition winner.
