The skills and courage of young Indigenous people from the Pilbara will soon be put to the test when they embark on a sailing adventure as part of a leadership program. Rio Tinto and POSCO, South Korea’s largest steel producer, will contribute US$50,000 each to fund the participation of about 40 Indigenous people in the Leeuwin Youth Explorer leadership program run by the Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation. The seven-day tall-ship ocean sailing adventure will incorporate challenging activities designed to test limits and build courage, communication and teamwork skills. Rio Tinto Iron Ore port, rail and core services managing director Richard Cohen said they were excited to support young Western Australians in the communities they operate in. “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people in the Pilbara to take part in an experience they’ll never forget while developing leadership and life-long personal skills,” he said. POSCO WA representative Daniel Kwon said they were pleased to build a brighter future and support local communities in the Pilbara with Rio Tinto.
