Take Charge Riverina Youth Leadership Forum 2019!

- Wednesday 28 August 2019 -

Following up from the really successful Take Charge Youth Leadership workshops delivered throughout the REROC LGAs in 2018, this year we are back to deliver the sixth Take Charge Riverina Leadership Forum to be held on Wednesday 28 August 2019 at the CSU Convention Centre, Wagga Wagga, between 9.10am and 2.30pm.

The Take Charge Riverina Youth Leadership Forum focuses on providing young people with the tools required to have a stronger voice in society, take leadership roles in our community as well as inspiring them to be involved in their local community.  Over the Forum’s 6 year history a diverse range of speakers have been showcased.  Inspirational young people that have done and are doing amazing things both within their local community and further afield have addressed the Forums.  The presentations are intended to provide real life examples of the ways in which young people can change the world they live in.  Each year the Forum also includes fun interactive workshops with some recent areas of focus being public speaking and presentation skills as well as sessions on mindfulness.

The Take Charge Riverina Youth Leadership Forum is open to students aged 12-17 years who reside in a Local Government Area serviced by a REROC Member Council. The REROC Member Councils are: Bland, Coolamon, Cootamundra-Gundagai, Greater Hume, Junee, Lockhart, Temora, Goldenfields Water County Council and Riverina Water County Council.   

This year’s Take Charge Forum will showcase an exciting range of speakers and workshops with the areas of science, careers, arts and the digital world all featuring on the agenda.  We have also put together a great day of workshops with sessions this year on digital presentation skills, Sphero and App workshops plus our popular sessions on mindfulness are again on offer.

The Forum is a youth initiative delivered by REROC and supported by the REROC Member Councils.  This year we are also pleased to announce that the Forum has been sponsored by Essential Energy and the Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network through a Murrumbidgee Community Grant.
