Young farmers leadership program

Agriculture Victoria are partnering with Regional Leadership to offer a fully funded place in each of their ten regional leadership programs for 2021.

Are you keen to:

  • connect with other people within your community who are interested in improving their leadership skills?
  • deepen your understanding of where your agriculture business sits within your region?
  • identify and develop your leadership style and identify your strengths?
  • gain support in improving your management and resilience skills?
  • participate in study tours in multiple different businesses across the region?

This is a fantastic opportunity for any young agriculture professionals or farmers looking to get more involved in community leadership.

Each region-specific program has different open and close dates for applications, so find out which region-specific program you are eligible for on the Regional Leadership website and keep an eye on dates.

Expressions of Interest are open until early 2021 for Regional Leadership programs in Ballarat and Western Region, and Gippsland.

Applicants are required to be 18 to 40 years of age, residing in regional or rural Victoria, and involved in agriculture or the agriculture supply chain.

You may be eligible to claim some out of pocket expenses, please contact your program for more information.
