Youth Leadership



Adelaide Hills Council's inclusive Youth Leadership Program (YLP) offers participants a unique opportunity to build transferable professional skills, increase their confidence, and participate in memorable events and activities, all at no cost.

YLP is designed for young people aged 15-25 years who live, socialise, or attend school in the Adelaide Hills district. The workshop series is completely free of charge, and participants require no prior experience in leadership roles or school groups.

Nominate yourself, or nominations can be made on behalf of a young person, such as a family member, carer, or friend. If you need help to complete a registration form, or would like to talk to someone about your accessibility needs or the needs of someone you know, call Mark on 0439 833 121, or Josh on 0436 379 740.

Successful applicants will be asked to commit to approximately three hours per fortnight between April and October.
