MEDIA RELEASE - Western bulldogs leadership project students graduate

12 September 2017

Twelve Glenelg Shire youth will tomorrow graduate from the Western Bulldogs Leadership Project after nine months of mentorship.

The program is designed to inspire, educate and mentor leaders for social change by providing nominated young people with an exciting range of life, civic and sport experience in which to learn and develop from.

The Western Bulldogs Leadership Project is delivered by the Western Bulldogs Football Club Community Foundation in partnership with the Glenelg Shire Council.

Glenelg Shire Council Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the program helped students increase their self-esteem and self-worth.

“Major outcomes of the program include increased social awareness, a sense of group identity and increased engagement within the local community.” Cr Rank said.

“The program has empowered young leaders and provided them with opportunities to engage and advocate across community, education and sport.”

Western Bulldogs Leadership Project graduate Courtney Ball said she walked away from the experience with a lot more leadership knowledge and skills that will assist her later in life.

“I would 100 per cent recommend it to others. It takes a lot of commitment but is worth the time,” Miss Ball said.

“I personally benefited from the program, as I learnt many new life skills and made new friends.”

The program’s graduation ceremony will be held Wednesday 13 September 2017 from 6-7:30pm at the Glenelg Shire Reception Room.
