We are seeking Expressions of Interest for the Rural Young Leaders Program, Riverina (Wagga Wagga)

Regional Disability Advocacy Service will be working with Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) to launch a version of CYDA’s National Young Leaders Program in Wagga Wagga, Riverina.

The Riverina Young Leaders Program will help young people with disabilities build their skills in leadership, advocacy and systems change. It will also let them build networks with their peers and community. The program runs for 6 months, is for young people with disabilities aged 18- 25, and will include topics about advocacy, systems mapping, disability justice and more.

This program will be based on CYDA’s National Young Leaders Program, which has been delivered online to young leaders all across Australia. To make the program work for young people with disability in Wagga Wagga, we are looking for community members to help us co-design an adaptation of the program.

Co-design is a way of creating things which involves bringing a group of people together to get their ideas, and making sure that everyone involved is listened to and that their ideas are included.

We want young people with disability, and people involved in disability services, youth services, advocacy, or lived experience leadership in Wagga Wagga to be part of this group helping us make the best Young Leaders Program possible.

We will have three sessions and would like you to attend all three. For being involved, you or your organisation will receive a $50 VISA gift card per session you attend (up to $150 in total per participant).

If you would like to be part of this group, please fill in and submit the form below before 9am, Monday 22nd April 2024. Successful applicants will be notified by phone and/or email before close of business Monday 22nd April 2024.
