  • February 18, 2014

Marine Rescue NSW members aged between 18 and 25 years who would be interested in taking part in a great development opportunity are encouraged to apply to be part of the ‘Change It Up’ forum.

This is a two-day workshop for emergency management volunteers aged 18 to 25 to develop an idea on how to better engage young people in emergency management volunteering. An initiative of the Australian Emergency Management Volunteer Forum and the Foundation for Young Australians, the event will be held at the Australian Emergency Management Institute, Mount Macedon, Victoria, from April 2 to 4.

Interested members should complete the application form (link below) and submit it by the February 28 deadline. Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for successful applicants.

Change It Up is like nothing you will have ever done before. Over two and a half days you can expect to learn new skills, make new friends, meet new people and try new things.

Change It Up will connect you with like-minded and passionate young people and will help you to network with influential members of the volunteering community.

You will be inspired by guest speakers and lead important conversations about the future of volunteering in Australia.

The final day of Change It Up coincides with the beginning of National Youth Week, where you will channel the message “our voice, our impact” when you pitch your idea with the aim of gaining some additional funding to take turn your idea into reality.
