Youth Leadership

We are committed to ensuring young people have every opportunity to have their voices heard, develop skills and lead change in their communities. We use a range of engagement tactics including advisory groups, forums, arts, sports, leadership training and mentoring to build the capacity of young people to become influential in Australian society.

 Be Seen, Be Heard - Using social media for positive change

The Be Seen, Be Heard training will increase your leadership and advocacy skills, whilst learning to harness the power of social media to bring about positive change in the community.

The four days will include inspiring guest speakers from prominent social media campaigns and youth-led organisations such as Minus18, Headspace’s “Yarn Safe” campaign, YVote, Oaktree, Organise Us and more!

Lead Yourself, Lead Others - Leadership training for young women

The two-day Lead Yourself, Lead Others training program will be an opportunity for young women from multicultural backgrounds to come together and share their unique stories and experiences and to learn about leadership.

The aim of the project is to empower young women to stand up and speak out and to be recognised more broadly as the true leaders that they are and can be within the community.

Shout Out

Shout Out is an innovative public speakers agency that trains and nurtures young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds to share their experiences and views with a wider audience. While there are many specialist voices willing to talk about youth issues, we think it’s often more insightful and meaningful to hear from the real experts – young people.

If you have an event, conference, workshop or meeting that would be enriched by a multicultural young person speaking passionately about a range of subjects, Shout Out can help.
