Youth Leadership Program

The Take the Lead Youth Leadership program aims to raise the aspirations of young people to be the next generation of leaders in our community.

Delivered through eight varied engagements, this free program provides activities that focus on developing leadership skills, a sense of social responsibility, self-reflection, public speaking, interpersonal skills, community connections, and team building.

Culminating in a graduation dinner, participants will leave this program with high level skills and resources to become more confident in their ability to contribute to their employer / organisation, and the wider community.

Participants will forge strong networks with mentors and existing leaders within the local community. The program is tailored to meet the individual needs of participants as they progress through the activities. 

If you are aged between 16 and 24, and looking to build confidence and challenge yourself, this program is for you.
