Welcome to True Blue Dreaming (TBD)

True Blue Dreaming is committed to supporting and strengthening young lives in rural and remote communities.  We are a youth and community development mentoring program engaging young people aged 12-18 in rural and remote Australia.  Our programs have been successfully delivered in the Wheatbelt and Kimberley regions of Western Australia since 2004.

The Governor General, Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC CVO meets with True Blue Dreaming.

The Governor General met with members and supporters of TBD during her recent visit to Perth.  Her Excellency recalled times of growing up in a small country town in Queensland and mentors from her life during her meeting with about 50 True Blue Dreamers.  The audience included mentees from the communities of Bruce Rock and Wyalkatchem as well as mentors from both UWA and Notre Dame.  Akram Azimi was Master of Cereomonies and introduced some excellent speakers from the mentor and mentee group – Calvin Davis from Wyalkatchem, Lawson Butler from Bruce Rock and Ellie Tapsell from UWA.  Past mentee, David Lewis, also spoke of his experiences and the influence this had on his military service especially in Afghanistan.





Footys4all is a not for profit foundation supplying new sporting balls from all codes (footballs, basketballs, soccer balls, etc.) to disadvantaged, underprivileged and socially displaced children around the world free of charge. Their aim is to unite the world through the power of sport.

TBD recently met with Footys4all Director Michael Gallus, to explore opportunities for supplying some our programs with this great resource.

Professor Fiona Stanley AC

Patron of True Blue Dreaming.

“For young people who live in rural and remote areas of Australia life can be very rewarding but also very challenging.  Isolation, lack of role models, limited resources and lack of self confidence can limit them from achieving their goals and dreams.  The wonderful young volunteers of True Blue Dreaming make a difference – I am proud to be the Patron.”
