Cape York Leaders Program is committed to empowering talented Indigenous leaders of the region to drive and own the Cape York Agenda, by providing them with the necessary leadership skills.
It all started with leadership
The Cape York reforms over the past two decades were inspired by Indigenous people across the Cape standing up. In the early 1990’s, these brave individuals came together at a series of historic summits and agreed that they would band together and take responsibility for the futures of their communities. Without their leadership, none of the ground-breaking reforms would have happened. Reforms that have had profound and positive impact on the lives of thousands of individuals and their families. Reforms that have influenced national thinking and policy.
Cape York Leaders Program seeks to create, grow and nurture natural leadership qualities in its members, building their capabilities to orbit between two worlds.
Its key outcome for Indigenous members of Cape York to be equipped with the capabilities to participate in the real economy.
