​Applications open for Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Program 2017

15 November 2016

The Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Program (A2ELP) brings together ten social entrepreneurs from South-East Asia and five from Australia to incubate new projects and meaningful professional connections across the region.

Taking place in Melbourne, March 2017, the eight-day learning and development intensive program is fully funded and delivered by Asialink and the Carlton Connect Initiative.

The 2017 program will have a social impact focus, and is designed for individuals who have 2-3 years’ experience working in organisations that generate social impact. The program is looking for applicants with proposals to expand a social enterprise or create a new social venture.

Over a four-month period, participants will learn about scalable business models, develop stakeholder engagement skills, attend networking events, and benefit from peer mentoring.

A2ELP was announced by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull during the ASEAN-Australia Summit earlier this year, initiated by the Australia-ASEAN Council (AAC), and supported by the AAC, the Australia Global Alumni (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) and the University of Melbourne.

Applications are open until 11 January 2017 – visit asialink.unimelb.edu.au
