NRL Cowboys House Girls Campus
NRL Cowboys House Girls Campus students with community engagement officers Ray Thompson and Matthew Bowen.
NRL Cowboys House is a joint initiative between the National Rugby League, North Queensland Toyota Cowboys, the Queensland Government and the Australian Government.
The Queensland Government invested $12 million toward construction of the House, which supported more than 80 local jobs, additionally committing $2.5 million over 4 years to support the Cowboys in operating the facility.
Cowboys Community Foundation director Fiona Pelling says:
The advantage of having a campus that supports young men and also now young women is the opportunity for providing equality and gender parity to ensure that both our boys and our girls are given the same opportunities that NRL Cowboys House has been set up to provide.
The new facility opened in January 2019 and in 2020 will host 50 girls in a unique supportive environment. Watch some of their stories:
