Menzies Young Leaders Graduation 2017



We are very proud to announce that our 2017 batch of Young Leaders have successfully completed their training with us and officially graduated from the Menzies Young Leader Program on 21 October 2017.

These seven young people started their training with us in July 2017, and over the past months trained in various aspects of leadership, including conflict resolution, advocacy, group facilitation, public speaking, and more.

The program was co-designed and co-facilitated by Addy Dunkley-Smith with the board of Satellite Foundation. Addy herself is one of Satellite’s young leaders, and she has done a wonderful job putting the program together.

We are so proud of each of new Young Leaders, we are proud of what they have achieved, and we are confident they will do even greater things in the future.

We are grateful for the support of Sarah Hardy, CEO of the Menzies Foundation, who graciously attended the graduation. We also thank Beth Wilson AM, our tireless ambassador. Finally, we thank the Foundation for Young Australians, where we held the graduation ceremony.
