What is
The Huddle?

Empowering young people.

Born out of the role and value of sport and the influence Australian Rules Football plays in connecting people across different ages, genders and cultures; The Huddle was established in 2010 as the community arm of the North Melbourne Football Club in partnership with the Scanlon Foundation and the Australian Multicultural Foundation.

It was established to engage, support and empower young people to build on their strengths, increase their ability to participate in society and contribute to more socially inclusive communities.
