Joel Thompson graduates from Indigenous Leadership Course
Joel Thompson has continued his outstanding off-field work this year by recently graduating with a Certificate 2 in Indigenous Leadership.
Thompson studied the course through the Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre this year, the venue where he works part time throughout the week and where he plans on working full time after his career ends. This course culminated with an intensive seven day work shop in Cairns last week.
The 24 year old volunteers his time for no financial gain which is an illustration of his growing leadership qualities within the Indigenous Community.
Thompson has grown significantly in maturity this year and has matched his brilliant on-field performances with his tremendous progression off the field.
The Indigenous All Stars representative was recognised for his efforts both and on and off the field at the Raiders
