2018 YouthFutures Conference
Be one of our lucky Awards Leaders or Youth Award Leaders who are ready to take their Duke of Ed Award dreams to the next level!
For the first time, Awards WA are launching the 2018 YouthFutures Conference for all Award Leaders, Youth Award Leaders and Principals. Set over two days in the picturesque Swan Valley Vines Resort, the conference aims to upskill, knowledge share and provide the practical skills you need to run and support the development of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award within your Award Unit. If you do not have Youth Award Leaders, now would be a good time to start recruiting.
Dates: Thursday 11th and Friday 12th October 2018 (week 1, term 4)
Location: The Vines Resort, Swan Valley
Cost: early bird registrations available until 31 July
Program: click HERE for conference outline
Registration: Click HERE to register. Closes 31 August
You will start each conference day with other eager Award volunteers from all over Australia as you work together to create change. You will be inspired by our keynote speakers and workshop hosts who have become change-makers in their own communities.
Afternoons will consist of outdoor activities/workshops that challenge you to see Award life through a different lens so you can apply your learning experiences to your organisations. These activities are designed to take you from inspiration to realisation and build your confidence to become the Award champion we know you are meant to be.
You will be mentored as you work within groups to reflect on your experiences, and work on your action plans at the end of each day.
By attending the conference, you will also have the opportunity to attend the 2018 Awards Ceremony on the evening of Thursday 11 October.
Travel subsidies may be available for regional Award Units. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or see the registration form for further details.
