Join us for this unique opportunity to share ideas on Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Health and Wealth

Take a look at what our usual immersive program looks like..

Our Youth Leadership & Business Summit is a one of a kind event designed to inspire success in all aspects of your life – and this year we are offering it online!

Imagine what would be possible if you had the skills to communicate effectively with others, manage your emotions in difficult times and a greater understanding of money, how to make it and how to use it.

Our online 2 day (12 hour) course is all the best bits of our 5 day event and we are excited to invite you to come and hear from our amazing speakers

What Is YLBS Online?

The Youth Leadership & Business Summit is Australia’s premier leadership event for young people. To get 2022 off to a flying start we are offering our program online.

Usually each year we bring 300 participants from around Australia & the world together for 5 days filled with content & experiential learning activities delivered by speakers & facilitators from around the world (many of them young people themselves).

This year due to the global pandemic we are moving the best bits of our program online for 2 days.

Our speakers deliver inspiring & engaging content that young people need to know. From sessions on entrepreneurship & money, to living a healthy lifestyle, effective communication and a range of leadership & teamwork skills & tools.

Who Can Attend?

Anyone aged 14-17 at the start of the Summit is encouraged to apply to join the event as a participant – from anywhere in the world.

Our participants are supported by a dedicated team of adults & young people, including attendees from previous years who have returned to step up into leadership roles, even in this online environment.


The Youth Leadership & Business Summit has been developed by the Magic Moments Foundation to provide our young people with the tools & strategies they need to succeed in an ever-changing world.

Our goal is to provide content & education that is missing from traditional school curriculums yet is so integral to young people’s ability to grow & develop into the leaders of tomorrow.

We encourage all of our participants to return to their communities & schools & share what they’ve learnt. We also provide them with the opportunity to return to YLBS as a Graduate or Youth Coach in future years, to further their leadership skills and support future participants.

Across the days you will connect with other like-minded young people and enjoy 12+ different sessions & activities in…

Financial Literacy & Wealth Psychology – A mindset tuned to success & an understanding of your financial health are key starting points for growing wealth.

Contribution & Community Awareness – Giving back & contributing to our communities is an integral part of being a leader.


Entrepreneurship & Business – Everything from idea generation to business planning and beyond.

Leadership, Teamwork & Communication Skills – Communicating effectively & working in a team are vital aspects of being a purpose-led leader.

State & Emotion Management – Real life skills to support you in taking control of your emotions and managing your state for maximum performance.

Health, Wellness & Mindfulness – A strong & healthy body is the first step to developing a strong & healthy mind.
