We are so excited to announce that mentor applications are open for the 2014 Youth Leadership Challenge. This annual voyage that brings together Tasmania's young leaders and recently-settled refugees - now new Tasmanians - has been an overwhelming success in years past.
Mentor positions are limited to 10, and applications are due September 1st. Download your application NOW, and decide how you plan to meet your $1,500 fundraising requirement - used to fund the participation of one refugee. You can apply to a participating Rotary Club, or do the fundraising yourself and send your application to Windeward Bound. For more information, contact Stephanie Katz, Windeward Bound's Program Development Manager at 0438 120 599 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Positions for youth coming from refugee backgrounds are fully funded. Young people from refugee backgrounds interested in participating should contact the Migrant Resource Centre at 03 6221 0999.
Many thanks to the Rotary Club of Hobart, MyState Foundation, and Migrant Resource Centre of Southern Tasmania, all of whose support has made this fantastic program possible!
Best of luck!
