YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
CONNECT: ELEVATE YOUNG LEADERS FORUM
Are you someone that speaks out against injustice? Do you believe one passionate person can bring about change? Have you been elected by your peers to represent them on your school student council? If you answered yes, the Elevate Forum is for you!
Elevate is for Year 11 Student Representative Council members. It is your chance to be inspired and challenged to reach your full leadership potential.
You will be join students from over 60 high schools for three days at UOW. You will be involved in activities, discussions and team challenges and be amazed by the journeys of other young leaders before you.
We looked at some research done by some respected leadership gurus: Kouzes & Posner; Komives; and Maxwell, and we picked out some of the qualities of these leaders to talk to you about at Elevate:
Leaders challenge the process
Leaders should be socially responsible
Leaders inspire action
The 2013 Elevate Forum will be held on:
- Friday 10 May, 9am - 2.45pm
- Wednesday 14 August, 9am - 2.45pm
- Friday 8 November, 9am - 2.45pm
By attending Elevate, you will develop:
- Enhanced leadership skills
- Better communication skills
- Your personal strengths and how to use these to achieve your goals
- Networks with UOW student leaders
You'll also get a UOW certificate for your CV. And if you enrol at UOW, we will know who you are already. This means, through our Centre for Student Engagement, you will be invited to participate in various leadership development programs offered on campus.
