Sports Programs Resources | Leadership | Young Men's Leadership Program

In 2006 Garnduwa introduced the Young Men’s Leadership Program (YMLP) to identify potential leaders amongst our young men in a different setting other than on the sports field. The idea also came about based on the concept of the YWLP which gave rise to the Kimberley Youth Leadership Program to encompass both aspects of the program.

There are two major events each year that are The Garnduwa Be Active West Kimberley Young Men’s Leadership Camp (WKYMLC) and the Garnduwa Be Active East Kimberley Young Men’s Leadership Camp (EKYMLC) that identifies Kimberley young men that have been selected based on their leadership potential seen through their participation in other Garnduwa programs. Activities are designed to engage the youth in meaningful cultural experiences, physically challenging activities and problem solving situations requiring resilience, leadership, communication and cooperation skills to be successful. We believe our camps offer young people the opportunity to develop themselves through value adding experiences that will deliver enhanced prospects for employment, education and community.

The West Kimberley YMLC is held on the Dampier Peninsula during Term 1 and encompasses participants from across the West Kimberley including Towns and Communities from Fitzroy Crossing through to Derby and Broome. The East Kimberley YMLC is held in Term 4 at El Questro Station and selects its participants from Wyndham and Kununurra through to Halls Creek and the Tjurabalan Region taking in all surrounding remote communities.

Garnduwa links in with other agencies and the Kimberley Schools to ensure that there are a variety of organisations delivering a range of activities and skill sets so that the Young Men are exposed to a range of experiences to help develop their Leadership Capacity.
