The Victorian Young Leaders (VYL): Emerging Leaders Forum is an exciting new program for Year 5 to Year 8 students. The program aims to enhance student leadership, voice, agency, intercultural understanding of the participants, and engagement with the Asia-Pacific region. The 2023 program will connect up to 60 students across Victoria and 40 students from schools across the Asia-Pacific region to explore what it means to be a global citizen. The program will support students to explore identity, culture, belonging, globalisation, and global citizenship. The delivery of the program will take place online from 8 – 12 May and will be facilitated by Asia Education Foundation at the University of Melbourne on behalf of the department.
Places are limited and fully funded by the department. Interested schools can express their interest by 5pm Friday 10 March at: Emerging Leaders 2023, or contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
