About Yarnteen

Yarnteen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Corporation was first established in 1991. In June 07 the Yarnteen members unanimously agreed to the transfer of incorporation of Yarnteen ATSI Corporation to Yarnteen Ltd (Yarnteen), a company limited by guarantee. Yarnteen Ltd (Yarnteen) is a not for profit company whose object is to provide Aboriginal people with training and employment opportunities to provide relief from unemployment.

The name "Yarnteen" comes from the Awabakal Tribe of the Newcastle area. Yarnteen means "All / Everybody".
