2019 Volunteer Leadership Program – Applications Open

The Volunteer Leadership Program provides an introduction to Volunteer Leadership and Management. It will be attended by emergency services and not-for-profit volunteers who are involved in emergency response and recovery.

The Volunteer Leadership Program will be held in Mandurah from Friday 29 March to Sunday 31 March 2019 inclusive.

The costs of the residency program are covered by AIDR with DFES covering costs associated with transport.

We are encouraging nominations from emerging volunteer emergency services leaders under the age of 30. We are asking all leaders of brigades, groups and units to use this course as an opportunity to provide an additional development opportunity for young emerging leaders within the volunteer workforce.

It is important to note that places in the course are limited and while DFES will prioritise attendees, AIDR makes the final decision about who will attend.

Applications will close on Friday 15 February 2019
