Neville Jetta


Melbourne AFL Football Club player
Australian Red Cross Ambassador

I'd like to show young Indigenous kids that they are not alone, that I have had similar experiences to them and I know what it's like.

Neville Jetta is a defender in the Melbourne AFL Football Club and a passionate Red Cross supporter. He will use his growing success on the field to mentor young offenders in Red Cross' juvenile detention programs, to help them turn their lives around.

"I'd like to show young Indigenous kids that they are not alone, that I have had similar experiences to them and I know what it's like," he has said.



Neville is an impressive role model for all young people, and for more than one hundred Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Red Cross staff and the many people we work with in Indigenous communities across Australia.



Neville helps motivate our team of everyday heroes who support Red Cross by competing in challenge events, such as marathons and fun runs, to raise much needed funds to support our everyday work in communities.

Neville made these great videos to inspire more than 1,000 Red Cross supporters to prepare for running the 2015 Melbourne Marathon Festival:
