Our Mission

At BOAB we commit ourselves to ensure that Indigenous communities can reach their employment potential and that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are supported when taking the next step in their professional development. BOAB is more than just about jobs, and we give Indigenous people the tools to help them prosper within the working environment. 

We believe in equal opportunities for all Indigenous people. BOAB is dedicated to improving the outlook for Aboriginal Australians by working together to reduce the gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal People in our society.
