New & Emerging Communities Leadership Program 2017

3 - NECLP Application

Welcome to the New and Emerging Communities Leadership Program (NECLP). The NECLP provides an outstanding opportunity for potential and current leaders from new and emerging communities across Victoria to build their leadership skills and capacity - to contribute to community development.

Have you recently arrived to Australia, and are living in a New and Emerging Community within Melbourne or regional Victoria?

Funded by the Victorian Government, this program is offered free for up to 30 leaders from new and emerging communities within Victoria.

Past graduates of the NECLP have arrived to Australia from over thirty different countries, and all are committed to making a difference in new communities (e.g. could include Afghanistan, South Sudan, Nepal, Pacific Islands, Iraq). The group includes people with different experience and backgrounds including refugees, skilled migrants, students and community members.

In 2017, the NECLP will run for the third year.

The first program to be held in 2017 will be the Melbourne program, commencing Wednesday 18 March 2017.

Please note the program will also run in two regional locations throughout 2017; dates and locations are yet to be confirmed.

The program features guest speakers, interactive activities and networking opportunities and provides a leadership development experience with long-lasting benefits for participants and the community.
