Surf Lifesaving Youth Opportunities

Two exciting youth opportunities for Surf Life Saving members have arisen with applications closing soon.

Change it Up – Young Emergency Management Volunteers
(nominations close Friday 28 February 2014)

Are you aged between 18 and 25? Do you have ideas on how to better engage young people with emergency management organisations? Then you should apply to attend Change It Up!

Change It Up is an event organised the Foundation for Young Australians together with the AEMVF (Australian Emergency Management Volunteer Forum) that gives you an opportunity to develop an idea about to better engage young people in emergency management organisations.

Over two days in Melbourne, you’ll network with other young volunteers, participate in workshops and present your idea to a panel of senior officials. There’s even seed funding awarded to the most viable idea to help get the idea off the ground!

To apply, or find out more information go to http://www.afac.com.au/research/news-details/2014/02/06/young-em-volunteers-change-up.

Y20 Australia
(nominations close 21 February 2014)

As part of the Australian Government’s presidency of the G20, an official Youth 20 (Y20) Summit will be hosted in Sydney from 12-15 July 2014. The Y20 Summit is the official platform for young people (aged 18-30 years) from across G20 countries to engage in policy discussions to the G20 Leaders Summit for consideration in their discussions.
