The Rotary SW Young Achievers Program is a highly successful residential workshop designed to help 18 – 25 year olds reach their full potential as future business and community leaders. It is a joint project of the Bunbury Chamber of Commerce & Industries and the Rotary Club of Bunbury Leschenault.

The Rotary Club of Bunbury Leschenault encourages the young people of the region to be the best they can be. Challenge yourself, meet new friends and complete a training program that provides valuable information on goal setting, communication, financial management, confidence, team work, public speaking, the importance of self awareness, time management and a successful mindset.

Registrations are now open To ensure a growing community of young strong leaders we ask employers, relatives, mentors and community members to nominate young people who are showing potential, as prospective participants and support the nomination by contributing $250 to the program costs. Applicants can also self nominate.

This is a life changing program with industry experts coming together to ensure the younger generation receive a training program delivering results. The Program will commence at 8.30am Thursday 9th March and conclude with a Gala Dinner at 6.30pm Saturday 11th March 2016 at the Quality Lord Forrest Hotel. The course venue is The Koombana Bay Holiday Resort, they will also provide accommodation.

Previous participants have benefited enormously from the program and are already playing active roles within our community and giving back to this great program through volunteer positions facilitating the success and continuous improvement.
