What is In League In Harmony?
With a focus on respect, responsibility and inclusiveness, the NRL's In League In Harmony (ILIH) program aims to promote social cohesion by addressing issues such as social disengagement, racism, gender inequality and bullying; empowering youth to be agents of change for a more cohesive society.
Involvement in Rugby League provides opportunities for the youth to develop social skills in addition to the fundamental playing elements. By being a part of the program, our participants are empowered to acknowledge, appreciate and celebrate the diversity among their peers and the wider community. The program unites the youth to explore how their similarities and differences provide opportunities for them to move forward together in harmony.
The program is delivered over a period of six school-based sessions which culminate in a celebratory Gala Day. It is achieved by using Rugby League as the vehicle to educate key competencies of individuals and groups in order to contribute to personal development and sustainable social change.
