Wangaratta LGBTQIA+ Leadership Program

This program has now been delivered.

Driven by a desire to broaden the capacity of our local LGBTQIA+ community, in 2019 Alpine Valleys Community Leadership was successful in securing funding via Pitch Up Wangaratta (sponsored by The Funding Network, in conjunction with the Into Our Hands Foundation) for the purpose of providing an enhanced leadership training program for the LGBTQIA+ community in the Wangaratta region.

An initial program was delivered by AVCL in March 2021, with a focus on leadership fundamentals to support the development of emerging leaders within the LGBTQIA+ community in the Wangaratta region.

AVCL is proud to partner with LINE Wangaratta for the delivery of a second program, in July 2022, with a focus on building the leadership skills and capacity of members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community.
