Conference - Domestic Students

This year the Chrysalis International Young Leaders Conference is providing local Brisbane high school students with the opportunity to attend the conference by applying to individual sessions and workshops. The Chrysalis Conference is a unique opportunity for students to learn leadership skills and network with other likeminded young people from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

The program theme is 'cross-cultural leadership'. Industry and academic guest speakers who are experts in their fields will lead the interactive sessions and workshops. They will be looking at what it means to be a leader, how to set goals to become a future leader and how to develop into a globally minded citizen.

If you are a local high school student and you interested in widening your horizon on cross-culture leadership, click on the individual sessions and apply now.

Please Note:

There are limited spots available per session so apply before the 10th of July to avoid any disappointment.

Program Details:

Our versatile one week leadership program includes an array of educational, interactive, and hands-on activities in a multicultural environment. You will also have the opportunity to explore Brisbane and experience the Australian lifestyle and culture.
