The Michael Long Learning and Leadership Centre

Officially opened on March 13 2015, the Michael Long Learning and Leadership Centre (MLLLC) is designed to harness the power of AFL football in the Northern Territory (NT) to give young Indigenous Territorians the same opportunities as all Australians.

The Centre has a focus well beyond football, delivering education programs for indigenous students from remote areas.

School attendance, engagement and behaviours, completion of secondary education, work readiness and awareness of opportunities are some of the many outcomes the MLLLC education programs focus on improving.

The MLLLC was established following the success of the AFLNT’s remote projects, which were set up in 2008. These projects are currently based in eight communities and surrounding regions across the NT, which deliver strong programs, that inspire and engage communities to promote education, health, wellbeing and employment outcomes through the power of football.

The Centre has accommodation facilities for up to 72 people, a state-of-the-art gym, pool/recovery, education spaces and corporate facilities for functions and events.
