Advance Leadership Class
‘Advance’, a youth leadership initiative established by the State Governments’ Department for Victorian Communities, has three focuses:
Community, communication and project management.
It aims to focus on developing young people’s knowledge about their connections to the community and community resources and assets available to them; to focus on strengthening young people’s communication skills; and to focus on building project management knowledge and skills.
‘Advance’ is a great opportunity for us to partner with you in building Assets into your students and a great opportunity for students to gain experience and a greater sense of self worth through the planning of these events and more.
‘Advance’, as delivered by Bridge Builders, started in Yarra Hills Secondary College (formally Pembroke) in 2005 and has helped produce some of the shires most notable events. The Yarra Hills ‘Advance’ class has organized the business breakfast, which saw 300 business people from around our shire in attendance. Other events over the years include Huck N Hold World Series Jet Ski, Shire Youth Forum, the Mt Evelyn Street Party, the Annual Karate Kick–A–Thon, and Skaters Unleashed are just a few of the successful events Advance students with Bridge Builders have designed and delivered.
