Youth Leadership



The Adelaide Hills Council 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.

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