Youth Leadership Summit

The Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) brings students together from all of our partner schools to attend our annual MADALAH camp. This program aims to connect young students so they can continue to grow into leaders for our next generation. Our Youth Leadership Students will also be given the opportunity to take part in MADALAH events.

The MADALAH Youth Leadership Program aims to connect young aspirant Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, so they can continue to grow into leaders for the next generation. Through this program we hope to open students up to endless possibilities, focusing on capacity building in areas such as problem solving, networking, critical thinking, public speaking and working in a team which are all important aspects of a being a good leader. Students who are successful with this application will also be given the opportunity to upskill through professional development and personal mentoring. Youth Leadership students will attend a Youth Leadership Summit where we will have motivational guest speakers, skill building activities and a range of culturally focused activities. This group will continue every year and students will be given opportunities to be involved in events such as the MADALAH Ball and End of Year Sundowner. Youth Leadership students will also be given certificates acknowledging the training and volunteering they have done during their time as a MADALAH Youth Leader which can be added to a professional portfolio for after year 12.

MADALAH mentors and staff will assess students against selection criteria and those who have demonstrated a willingness to be a leader or who have already shown leadership skills throughout the year.
