Following the success of the Mundaring Agent’s of Climate Change event in March 2023, the Millennium Kids  team have developed a leadership program aimed at training more youth facilitators. Learnings from the Mundaring event have enabled Millennium Kids to develop a multi-day program that has successfully attracted funding from RAC.

Shire of Mundaring resident Cathy Levett from Millennium Kids says “Our Youth Leaders are pretty excited to announce the launch of the RAC Ignite Leadership program that they have been working on behind the scenes for the last 6 months. Bella, Troy, Maria, Jacob and Amelia have worked with the RAC Team, Ben, Kendell and Cass to co-design a leadership program for young change makers.”

The program will bring together up to 30 young people to explore how to create a safer, more sustainable and better connected future for Western Australia. Through the program selected participants will learn how to play a role in the decisions that affect the future through a series of unique leadership and action learning modules.

Through exclusive access to leading experts and mentors, participants will develop an idea and pitch it to win a $6,000 cash prize along with follow-up support and mentoring by RAC and Millennium Kids (MK). Developed by young people for young people, the program includes:

  • Four masterclasses and an opportunity to connect with like-minded young people and changemakers at a networking event
  • Exclusive access to leading experts and mentors
  • A two-night leadership camp at Fair Harvest in Margaret River
  • Pitch training and support
  • A celebration event held at RAC Arena where finalists will share their pitches with the chance win a $6,000 cash prize or $3,000 for the runner-up
  • A $500 gift voucher for Resorts voucher from RAC for all program participants

Developed by young people for young people, RAC is proud to partner with Millennium Kids to deliver a high impact leadership program that brings like-minded people together to drive positive change.  Applications for the first program have been oversubscribed so if you are interested visit the RAC Ignite Leadership Program for more information.
