Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) last week launched the first National Youth Disability Leadership Program! This program is designed for young people with disability anywhere in Australia, aged 18-25.

The program is for young people with disability who have aspirations and goals to become future young leaders. No matter what your background or experience is with leadership, this program is for you!

The program is an opportunity to meet new people across the country, develop skills, knowledge, and be introduced to a network of engaged young people! This program will support YOUR leadership ambitions and YOUR skills and interests, whatever they may be!

The program is free to participate in and is completely online, meaning you can participate from anywhere in Australia! 

Nominations are set to close on Wednesday 18 November at 11:59pm. There are two nomination forms available!

Nominations can be made on behalf of a young person, such as by a family member, employer, advocate or friend:
