Young Leaders 2023/24 is open to both female and male cricketers.
Cricket Wellington is committed to providing opportunities for young people to serve in cricket leadership positions. Young Leaders is a seasonal youth leadership programme that supports youth cricketers to develop their leadership and sports delivery skills, offers opportunities to volunteer and be involved in their community, and have mentoring sessions with professional players, both current and past. This summer will be the fourth season of Young Leaders, and to date 55 young women have graduated the programme.
We're also proud to announce that, for the first time in 2023/24, Young Leaders will run a programme for boys adjacent to the existing programme. We're looking forward to working with two different groups of Young Leaders to support their leadership development.
By the end of the programme you will have :
Developed conﬁdence and competence in a range of leadership behaviours
Volunteered in a variety of leadership roles in your local community
Gained access to positive and knowledgeable mentors
Receive ongoing support to continue to build on your leadership journey
The Young Leaders programme is ably supported by Student Leads. Our Student Leads for the 2023-24 season are Jo Wawatai who is leading the girls programme and Dhriti Girish who is leading the boys programme.
