Girl in Charge

Victoria Police Netball Club is putting girls living in Western Victoria in charge!


This holistic police-led program involves year 9 girls negotiating mid-teen social and health challenges by using netball as the vehicle and the prospect of part-time work to help drive it.


Designed by police from the Western Region the program focuses on providing girls with the tools to foster a positive self-image and to achieve health goals by connecting them with the community, sport, and employment pathways developing leadership skills and confidence.



At the end of the nine weeks, the girls celebrate their achievements with an end-of-term graduation. Members of the police force, local community, and Council are invited to show thanks for their support and honor the success of the girls.
