Careers and aspirations: young Torres Strait Islanders, 1999–2003

13 Oct 2004
Description

Bill Arthur, Josephine David-Petero, Victor McGrath and Elizah Wasaga analyse data from a 2004 reinterview of a survey sample of Indigenous males and females aged between 15 and 24 years in Torres Strait which explores the careers and aspirations of Indigenous young people. The survey was first conducted in 1999. The principal issues include the perceptions of young people of commercial fishing as a career, the factors that helped or hindered people in achieving their aspirations between 1999 and 2003, and the extent to which they use opportunities on the mainland to further their aspirations.
