2017/18 FLOW Program is looking for Projects
With the Future Leaders of the West program now underway, participants are looking for projects to undertake as a component of their work towards attaining their Diploma of Leadership and Management.
Teams of participants are to work on the projects which contribute to their assessment for the Diploma of Leadership and Management. There is no cost to the organisation hosting the project team but if the project has an implementation phase this will be at the organisation's expense.
Previous FLOW projects included the development of a Wyndham App, an edible garden in a school, and an investigation into the health and well-being practices of workplaces in Laverton/Laverton North.
This is a great opportunity to engage with our future leaders to develop that idea or project you have been thinking about.
Youth Detention Centre
The Committee acknowledges the need for a new secure youth detention facility but the location selected by the State Government is inappropriate and has been made without due consideration of alternative options or with appropriate consultation.
