Victorian Young Leaders: Global Youth Forums 2023

Connecting Year 9 Students Across Victoria and Asia-Pacific

The Victorian Young Leaders: Global Youth Forum is an interactive three-part online learning program for students in Year 9 Victorian schools to connect with peers from a range of schools and countries across the Asia-Pacific including China, Thailand, Japan, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines.

The forums are designed to deepen student understanding of identity, belonging, culture, globalisation, and what it means to be a global citizen. Victorian students will have the opportunity to connect with peers from across the Asia-Pacific online during this 3-part program to collaboratively explore these topics. Throughout the program, students engage in a range of activities and regular breakout rooms in small groups with peers from a range of other schools and countries.

Recently in March 2023, just under 1000 students, from 100 schools from 10 countries participated synchronously in the forums. The program was a success, and we are excited to deliver it in Term 3.

This opportunity for Victorian students is an initiative of the Victorian Department of Education and all places for students are funded under this initiative. There is no cost for students’ places in the program. Victorian schools can register a maximum of 10 Year 9 students to participate in the program at no cost. Places are limited and expressions of interest are essential.
