SCYLF – South Coast Leadership Forum
The South Coast Youth Leadership Forum (SCYLF) is a local effort implemented by the Inspire Youth Australia Foundation to address and change the youth unemployment problem within the Shoalhaven region. This initiative is targeted towards 15 -17 year olds, both indigenous and non-indigenous, who are living within the region but may not understand the local opportunities available to them as far as employment and personal development are concerned.
The program is conducted over 3 days in October, introducing a mix of both international facilitators and local speakers in order to prepare 65 youths to become active community members and equip them with the right skills to become change makers. With a focus on regional and indigenous youth, the training is designed to assist the youth to create positive change within their life and their community.
