Indigenous Youth Leadership Program Now Open

Young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can now apply to participate in this year’s Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (QIYLP).

Queensland Indigenous Youth Leadership Program
Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Jackie Trad is urging eligible people to apply.

“QIYLP nourishes the ideas of young and emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders – allowing them to grow and create positive change in their communities.”

The program brings together 40 participants from across the state to participate in a six-day residential program, designed to develop leadership skills and teach about the democratic processes in Queensland.

Participants undertake a range of experiences in QIYLP including leadership and professional development workshops, mentoring and networking opportunities and attend parliament workshops.

Applications are now open for those aged 18 to 25 years, for the six-day residential program that will take place in Brisbane from 30 June 2018 to 5 July 2018.

Applications are open now and will close on 4 May 2018.
