Applications open for Indigenous youth leadership program

Date posted: 10 November 2011

Applications for the Indigenous youth leadership program (ILYP), commencing in June 2012, are now open. The IYLP is a Youth Challenge Australia (YCA) venture which sends young Indigenous Australians on a leadership and community development project in Vanuatu in the South Pacific.

The program is a unique and exciting opportunity for young Indigenous Australians (21 - 30 years) to enhance their leadership and vocational skills through personal development, community development, work experience, education and cross cultural awareness and understanding.

Teams of five Indigenous Australian youth participants, along with Indigenous Australian field staff, receive training in Australia before travelling to Vanuatu to live in a developing community for six weeks.

The IYLP teams have the opportunity to work, share experiences and develop relationships with other young Indigenous Australian and local Ni-Vanuatu youth, as well as various Indigenous communities in Vanuatu.

Applications close at 5pm (EDST) on Friday December 16th 2011.

For detailed information about how to apply for this opportunity, see links below.
