DATES:          6 – 8 SEPTEMBER, 2013



As part of our ongoing efforts to work with young people Red Cross would like to contribute to creating pathways through which young people can participate as leaders in day to day community life and in the recovery and rebuild of our city in ways that are meaningful to them.  To this end Red Cross will be holding a Youth Leadership Development Forum under the theme Educate, Empower, Enable! to educate young people on community and humanitarian work;  allow for their empowerment through leadership and skills development; and provide resources to enable young people to  implement projects they want to in their communities.  The Forum will be held from 6 – 8 September 2013 at Living Springs. The Forum will be held for 50 young people  in years 11 to 13 at high school  who are chosen by their schools to attend the Forum. 

What young people can look forward to

The Forum will take the young people through a variety of activities that will contribute to education, empowerment and enabling.  There will be no cost on the part of the young person attending the conference.  All expenses in relation to attendance at the Forum will be met by the Red Cross.

What we request

Any students interested in community and humanitarian work can apply to participate in the Youth Leadership Development Conference. To apply return the registration form and parent/guardian permission slip (see above) to the STUDENT OFFICE by Friday 9th August. Only those students endorsed by their Division will be chosen to represent Burnside High School.
