Blacktown Emerging Leaders & Advocates Program (BELA)
Blacktown Emerging Leaders & Advocates Program provides leadership, coaching and mentoring support to young aspiring leaders in Blacktown. Young people will gain advocacy, community engagement, leadership and public speaking skills. Eligible youth will be aged 14-24 years old, from a migrant or refugee background and interested in social issues affecting migrant and refugee young people at a local, state/territory and national level. All BELA participants commit to fortnightly meetings for at least 6 months. Graduates of the BELA program will form the SydWest Youth Advisory Committee and become SydWest Youth Ambassadors.
