Twenty10 is running a leadership program for gay and lesbian young people who aspire to be the next generation’s community frontrunners.
Q&A will take up to 20 participants aged 18-28 and put them through a 15-day program run from March to November next year with mentoring, engagement and opportunities to gain hands-on experience.
“We want the Q&A program to help equip our young leaders with the capabilities to tackle complex social problems and to deal with the pressures of leadership,” Twenty10 executive officer Meredith Turnbull said.
By bridging the generational gap, the hope is a stronger community, visible and resilient to change, as well as ambassadors in public life.
Former senior government advisor on AIDS, Bill Bowtell, and ABC presenter, Fran Kelly, will be launching the program tonight at Twenty10’s Aurora Room, 45 Bedford St, Newtown.
Applicants are asked to contribute $33 per day of the program.
Applications close 31 January 2008. Forms and further information available at www.twenty10.org.au/leadership.
