Intended Audience: 15 - 18 Year Old Tasmanian Residents

The Youth Leadership Challenge is a ten-day youth development voyage aboard STV Windeward Bound involving 20 Tasmanian youth aged 15 to 18 -- ten positive Tasmanian mentors, and ten New Tasmanian's from refugee backgrounds. This program promotes understanding, inclusiveness, and community by bringing together young people of vastly different backgrounds, and giving them the opportunity to connect and grow with one another in the unique environment of a traditional sailing ship!

NOTE: We have not yet received enough mentor applications, and have sponsorship's available. Please encourage any students who show strong leadership skills to apply! This is a fantastic opportunity!

If you have students from refugee backgrounds that are interested, please contact us. Applications will be available in August through the Migrant Resource Centre.
