The Melbourne Storm ‘In League In Harmony’ (ILIH) program aims to promote social cohesion by addressing issues such as social disengagement, racism, gender inequality and bullying; empowering youth to be agents of change for a more cohesive society.
Involvement in Rugby League provides opportunities for the youth to develop social skills in addition to the fundamental playing elements. By being a part of the program, our participants are empowered to acknowledge, appreciate and celebrate the diversity among their peers and the wider community.
The program unites the youth to explore how their similarities and differences provide opportunities for them to move forward together in harmony.
In 2021 the Harmony Youth Summit was held. Over 60 kids from across Victoria were able to take part. Watch the inspiring video that captured the event here.
