Female Indigenous Youth Leadership Program is open

Nominations are now open for the Female Indigenous Youth Leadership Program.

The program is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls aged 12 to 15 years of age from across NSW and the ACT. The program forms part of the pathway to the National Diversity Woomeras team.

The upcoming program will be delivered in a 3-day camp format in Sydney from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 November. The program provides an opportunity for participants to build upon their leadership and football skills whilst encouraging them to continue to be leaders within their local community. We aim to achieve this through education sessions and specialised mentoring from both AFL Ambassadors and elders.

This camp will include:

  • AFL Skills and Drills
  • Personal and football development goals
  • Learning from AFLW and AFL players
  • Leadership sessions, including culture and identity
  • Training and game simulation
  • Education session delivered by Transport for NSW
  • Further details of AFL Talent Programs and Player Pathways

Participants will be provided with free transport to and from Sydney from their nearest airport thanks to the support received from Transport for NSW. Flights will be arranged for Friday morning and returning on Sunday afternoon.

Participants will be staying at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence, Redfern and training and games to be held on site. All meals will be provided over the weekend.

Nominations are now open for those wanting to take part in a weekend of AFL activities, skill and personal development. To nominate, send a written application stating in 100 words or less why you should be selected to take part in this program. Applications are to be sent to Mark Leavy, AFL NSW/ACT Indigenous Lead, at mark.leavy@afl.com.au.

Nominations close on 24 October 2019.
