A FREE leadership workshop for female students in years 10 to 12 living in the City of Joondalup will be held these school holidays.

Girls Can Lead – Young Women’s Leadership Program is a two-day interactive workshop for girls who want to build confidence, make new friends and get active and involved in their community.

Facilitated by WA businesswoman and leadership mentor Alicia Curtis, it will feature team games, motivating stories and reflective activities.

Ms Curtis’s leadership journey started at 12 years old when she attended the first International Children’s Conference for the Environment in England hosted by the United Nations.

This experience inspired her to serve the community and when she returned to Perth, she co-founded her own children’s conference that still exists today.

At 21, she ran as an independent candidate for the Federal Senate and more recently, she established 100 Women which has fundraised close to $400,000 for women and girls.

Other leadership role models will include United Nations Association of Australia – WA Division’s vice president Sandy Chong, women’s committee convener Aleisha Godenzie and deputy convener Angel Chen, Bottle for Botol founder Christine Parfitt, Joondalup MLA Emily Hamilton and Joondalup councillor Christine Hamilton-Prime.

The workshop will be held at the Joondalup Library from 12.30pm to 5pm on April 19 and 26.

Applications close April 1 at bit.ly/YWLP-J or by emailing womens.committee@unaa-wa.org.au.
