Neville - Australia

“Life can be tough sometimes,” says Neville Jetta.

"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.”

The AFL Melbourne Demons player is using his success on the field to mentor young offenders to help them turn their lives around. He’s one of our ambassadors, volunteering with us at a youth justice centre and also helping inspire our supporters.

Neville has also just won the Jim Stynes Community Leadership Award for his work supporting Indigenous youth.
