Do you care about the environment and want to make a difference? Join us for a week long leadership development adventure for 55 secondary school students passionate about the environment. You will have the opportunity to address topical environmental issues facing our country, and develop strategies to address them.
YELF 2017 will be in Auckland and focus on different environmental issues related to our oceans. By working with other up and coming youth environmental leaders, you will leave YELF fired up, with improved leadership capabilities, inspired and ready to create change.
Applications for YELF 2017 will open in December 2016. You will need a CV and character references so get started soon!
