Community & Sponsorship
UEA have made a commitment to sponsor charity groups, community organisations, sporting teams and individuals since its inception over ten years ago. The company directors all come from the Goulburn region of NSW and have been avid sponsors of many local junior sporting teams in soccer, basket ball and AFL. For the past eight years we have also donated money to the Special Children's Christmas Party and the Cancer Council.
Uea civil & mining support clontarf
The Clontarf Foundation exists to improve the education, discipline, self-esteem, life skills and employment prospects of young Aboriginal men and by doing so, equip them to participate more meaningfully in society.
Each Clontarf Academy, formed in partnership with the local school, is focussed on encouraging behavioural change, developing positive attitudes, assisting students to complete school and secure employment. Fundamental to this, is the development of values, skills and abilities that will assist the boys to achieve better life outcomes.
Through a diverse mix of activities, the full-time, local Clontarf staff mentor and counsel students while the school caters for the educational needs of each student.
Since opening its first Academy for 25 boys on the campus of the Clontarf Aboriginal College in Perth, Western Australia in 2000, the Foundation has grown rapidly and has been consistently successful. It now caters for over 2,500 boys in 45 schools across Western Australia, Northern Territory and Victoria.
UEA are proud sponsors of the program, we see it as being an important link for young men to be better prepared for life and a good transition to employment. We also see Clontarf as a future employment strategy for our company with one of our current employees Jeff Farrell (third from left) a successful recipient of the program.
MOTOCROSS - UNDER 19 JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT TEAM
After a successful year in 2010 running Pro rider Danny Ham in the MX Nationals, in 2011 UEA Racing will establish a relatively new approach to running a team by selecting 5 young riders from the Goulburn/Canberra region to contest the highly competitive Under 19 MX Nationals and NSW State Series. The team consists of Joe Gillespie #533, Joel Griggs #123, Jack McNeice #265, Lewis Reardon #221 and Sid Rowlands #202. All the riders are of similar skills and will be under the watchful eye of Dave Harvey an internationally experienced MX coach. Our goal is to have all boys qualify for each round - only 40 riders qualify out of the 70 entrants – a top 10 finish for any of the riders will be a great team result.
