Founded in 2016, Kicking Goals Together (KGT) is a sport for development program that operates on the Brisbane Campus. KGT provides a 16-week soccer tournament during semesters 1 and 2, which includes players from refugee and migrant backgrounds, as well as international student cohorts.
KGT partners with Multicultural Development Australia (MDA) to offer additional educational opportunities related to networking and personal brands, job seeking, English language skills, and leadership. KGT also partners with ACU Health, Sport, and Wellbeing, ACU International, and people with refugee and migrant backgrounds in local communities to deliver the program. In 2016, KGT won the ACU Vice-Chancellor and President’s award for outstanding community engagement. In 2017, KGT received support from a Brisbane City Council Healthy and Physical Activity grant. This year KGT also received the Australian University Sport (Australian Sports Commission) Award for Community Leadership. Please like our Facebook page, @KickingGoalsTogether.
Some familiarity with sport (especially soccer) is an advantage, but not an essential.
During weeks three to 11 of each semester, on Wednesdays from 3.15 to 6.30pm.
