Residential programs are designed to create more time for networking and building social connections through evening activities. Also, being away from home and the habitual place of work, takes away those distractions that come with everyday life. This way, you can fully immerse yourself into the learning experience.

Aside from some travel and personal expenses to, from and during sessions, the program is free to attend thanks to our program partners.

The project has received grant funding from the Australian Government.

Regional leadership programs don’t just benefit individual participants. They also benefit the cohort and the entire community. 

At an individual level, you invest in yourself to develop the skills, mindset and network to understand and influence uncertainty and create vibrant communities for generations to come.

You grow your networks within and outside of your community, by joining the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation’s national network. That is more than 1,700 people working for the greater good of their communities. 

The community will gain a group of courageous and influential people with the skills to gather support from within the community and their new network to put the plan into action. 

Do you live in the Eurobodalla Shire? Are you interested in accessing some of the best leadership thinking and practice available and acquiring practical leadership tools and skills? Would you like to develop a deep understanding and knowledge about leading change in your community? Are you looking for strong networks with like-minded people and an opportunity to work on projects that you are passionate about? Would you like to link your ideas with support and inspiration from others?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, this program is for you. 

Numbers are limited to 24 people to ensure this is a very personal, selective and ‘hands-on’ learning experience! This program is for people who have passion and empathy, and what to make a genuine difference in their team, community, or sector. Someone who want to engage more people in building new enterprises and driving change for the good of the public. It’s for small business owners who want to learn new skills, for current and emerging leaders in local government or higher, and for those leading an interest group who have a stake in Eurobodalla.

We care a lot about what you’ve done and even more about what you want to do. We want to support and assist you in making productive change happen. Ideally, we are seeking a diverse group of program participants that truly represents all segments of our community.
