Chance to develop young Indigenous leaders

Date posted: 13 February 2014

An Indigenous youth academy is calling on young Indigenous leaders, aged 15 to 18, to join an initiative that helps to develop national campaigns for social change.

The National Indigenous Youth Leadership Academy (NILYA) is taking applications for the 2014 National Gathering to be held in New South Wales from May 25 to May 30, where participants will develop, launch and lead national campaigns for social change.

The 2013 National Gathering involved 50 Indigenous young people from across Australia working together to address issues including constitutional recognition, refugees and asylum seekers, suicide prevention, climate change and Closing the gap.

NILYA connects Indigenous young people from communities across Australia and is an initiative of the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA).

All travel, accommodation and meal costs will be covered by NILYA for successful applicants.
