Volunteer Leadership Program
Australia’s capacity to respond to disasters relies on emergency management volunteers. Today’s volunteer leaders must negotiate a maze of relationships, networks and expectations to lead effectively in the disaster environment. Leadership demands innovation, creativity, negotiation, improvisation and strategic vision.
The Volunteer Leadership Program (VLP) enhances volunteer skills in leadership and organisational management. The program builds individual and organisational capability and promotes collaboration and innovation in our organisations. The VLP is designed to be accessible to volunteers.
Applications for each course close six weeks before the start of the program – see selection process.
