About us

Indigenous Reading Project is an independent organisation established in 2012 as a not-for-profit Australian Company. We are a passionate team of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people working to bring about change in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids.


Our values

  1. People centred - We put Indigenous students at the centre of everything we do.
  2. Respect – We work cross culturally out of respect for each other and so we can achieve the best possible outcomes.
  3. Voluntary Service – We harness the power of volunteers who are high achieving, dedicated and professional.
  4. Excellence – We have high expectations for the quality and impact of our work and we strive for excellence.
  5. Innovation – We harness the latest technologies, embrace new ideas and products and adapt our processes to stay at the leading edge in what we do and achieve.


We are governed by a Board of Directors and our core work is done by a team of skilled volunteers. We also receive great support from our patron, Professor Marcia Langton.

We have a team of skilled and experienced people who volunteer their time to support our work. Our people are making a direct contribution to improving the reading ability of Indigenous kids. If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please send a message to volunteer@irp.org.au.
