AFL Cape York House is providing 30 Indigenous boys from around the region and the Torres Strait housing to undergo tutoring, work experience and training.

The initiative, set up last year, is in response to the low rate of Indigenous students graduating high school in the region.

Program Manager Rick Hanlon told SBS World News they provide the boys with opportunities for their future.

AFL Head of Diversity Jason Mifsud says the current program in Cape York is working well and he hopes to adopt it throughout the country.
