Indigenous youth leadership program



During 2010-11 the Jobs Australia Foundation delivered the first Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (IYLP). The program, which was delivered over two years, was an outstanding success resulting in a commitment to deliver a second program.

The IYLP will be a life-changing experience designed to extend the leadership capabilities of the young leaders and mentors. Inherent to the training will be the strengthening of leadership and employability skills with participants, young and old, becoming clearer about their skills and abilities and the employment, education and training opportunities available to them. Participants will build a strong and connected network that will include their peers, educators and leaders from all around Australia and be exposed to different cultures and cultural practices as a result of their travel to locations such as remote central Australia for the Cultural Walk and the trek of the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea.

A range of activities will be delivered in and out of the course to engage participants diverse in; age, experience, skills and knowledge. Throughout the program participants will work towards the completion of a nationally recognised qualification.
