Applications are now open for the 2023 Cardinia Community Leadership Program.

This fully funded program provides up to 22 participants with an opportunity to build or enhance their leadership skills and networks, and learn from a host of guest speakers, local leaders and program alumni. 

“This program covers topics to help participants build their capacity as leaders within their local neighbourhoods, groups or organisations,” said Cardinia Shire Mayor, Councillor Tammy Radford. 

“If you are someone who guides, motivates and inspires others, keeps a team together and united in working towards a common goal, or aspires to do this in the future, then this program is for you. I encourage you to apply for this incredible opportunity.” 

The course runs from July to December 2023 and is designed to prepare participants for success in their community leadership roles. The program encompasses learning through a diverse range of methods, so that participants can learn more about themselves, others and their community in their pursuit to lead more effectively.
