MAKE A DIFFERENCE AT YOUR CLUB
Tennis Victoria’s Future Leaders Program enables our next generation of volunteers to work closely with our local tennis clubs in creating welcoming environments on and off the tennis court.
Future Leaders has been running since 2001, and since that time we’ve had over 500 participants take part in the program, who have given back over 21,000 hours of volunteer time to local tennis clubs across Victoria.
The program is designed for Year 10 and 11 students and provides participants with the opportunity to make a difference at their local tennis club. Program participants attend a three day camp, develop important teamwork and leadership skills and work with Tennis Victoria to develop a project plan to take back to their tennis club to complete.
Participants are required to complete a minimum of 40 hours work in completing the project and report back to Tennis Victoria. Upon completion, participants are invited to attend a graduation hosted by Tennis Victoria in recognition for all their hard work.
WHY BECOME A FUTURE LEADER?
Don’t take our word for it! Hear from two of our amazing Future Leaders, Silas Kingma (Gunbower TC) and Mia Stefanovska (Hume Tennis & Community Centre)
“My tennis club paid for me to complete the Future Leaders Program, I enjoyed my 40 hour project and now aim to start a junior committee at my tennis club to organise more programs.”
