2019 Emerging Leaders in Governance Program

Are you an aspiring community Board director? Or do you know someone who is?

The Emerging Leaders in Governance Program (ELGP) is one of three components of the Engaging Young Leaders on Aged Care and Community Boards initiative.

The ELGP is an innovative 4-month program (running from January – May 2019) that pioneers the engagement of young leaders (under 40) on the Boards and Committees in the aged care and community sector. Each year we offer 20 scholarships to emerging leaders to undertake the award-winning Emerging Leaders in Governance Program (ELGP).  Before you apply please carefully read all the information outlined below.

Who we are looking for?

The Emerging Leaders in Governance Program is looking for committed participants, under 40 years old, who:

  • have a strong interest in serving the aged care and community sector – including aged care, health, disabilities, youth, education, environment, poverty alleviation and more!
  • have a desire to develop their leadership and Board directorship skills to be able to give back to their community.
  • have some experience as a volunteer, committee or board member.
  • come from different work industries, backgrounds and have diverse interests.
  • are committed to securing a Board or Committee position within the aged care and community sector in the same year as completing the program (this will be the responsibility of the participant, not the program).
  • are committed to attending the entire program including weekly evening workshops, Saturday sessions and a weekend retreat and completing all the course work.
