The Oaktree Foundation’s Generate program is now accepting applications for Tasmania in 2011.
This is a unique leadership program, exposing first time volunteers to the aid and development sector through active campaigning and lobbying action to support their vision for global change, and provide the skills needed to realise that vision. Check it out by visiting the Oaktree Foundation.
Extensive skills training is undertaken in:
- Public speaking
- Facilitation and event management
The program runs Australia wide from mid-March to mid-October, accepting up to 300 applicants (18-26) a year. This is a valuable opportunity to work alongside other talented, creative and dedicated individuals to create new educational opportunities for young people in the developing world.
