Youth Leadership

Adelaide Hills Council has designed a leadership program aimed specifically at people 15-25yrs who live, socialise, or go to school in the district. This program offers participants a unique opportunity to build transferable professional skills, increase their confidence, and participate in memorable events and activities.

The Youth Leadership Program is completely free of charge and participants don't need any prior experience in leadership roles or school groups. Successful applicants will be asked to commit to approximately three hours per fortnight between April and October.
