Me – My Team – My Community

About the program

TAFE Gippsland and the East Gippsland Community Foundation have partnered to build leadership capacity for the youth in East Gippsland.  Designed for new and emerging youth leaders in the 16–24-year age group, this exciting series will provide young people with the opportunity to explore their leadership potential.

The program focuses on three aspects of leadership – ME, MY TEAM, and MY COMMUNITY. Soft skills will be a focus within each of these themes including building personal attributes and enhancing technical skills to help achieve tasks. The learning journey will give each participant the skills and tools to contribute to their personal growth, to their role as a team member and ultimately as a successful leader in their local community.

The series will run from March to October 2023 and will include three face-to-face sessions in Bairnsdale, ten online workshops and a graduation ceremony in November.
