Personal development and leadership training for selected Year 12 Program participants

Training tomorrow's leaders

Selected NYSF participants



Each year, participants from the NYSF Year 12 Program are selected to take part in our NYSF Student Staff Leadership Program (SSLP). This is a leadership development program delivered in conjunction with Outward Bound Australia. Through the program, participants develop awareness and social connection, and gain an understanding of individual and group values, the development of supporting and trusting relationships, and have the opportunity to reflect on their own performance and the performance of others within a shared leadership approach. These participants then return to the NYSF Year 12 Program the following January to help deliver the program as Student Staff Leaders (also called Staffies). The student staff leaders are selected for the role by their peers and represent the youth stewardship of the NYSF as a meaningful and legitimate development opportunity, by youth for youth.

Being a NYSF Staffie was the challenge I'd been waiting for my entire life. I'm very appreciative to the organisation for trusting me to be part of delivering the program to the next participants.
