Building young leaders

The academy is the university’s premier undergraduate leadership program which aims to develop future leaders with community values and entrepreneurial spirit.
Karawara resident Annika Htun will be working on a project for Youth Focus.
She aims to design an awareness and fundraising campaign for the organisation, while also helping to reduce the stigma associated with youth mental health issues and suicide.
resident Criddle is studying a Bachelor of Commerce and will be working on a project for MelanomaWA.
She will be working on the live auction component of MelanomaWA’s annual ball.
She and other students will develop a plan to ensure the smooth running of the auction, while liaising with key staff at MelanomaWA.
The JCLA program starts with a four-day leadership camp where students explore personal values, learn to work effectively in teams and challenge themselves.
