What Is YLBS?

The Youth Leadership & Business Summit is Australia’s premier leadership event for young people.

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

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. 

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.

If you’re looking to sponsor a young person to attend or know a young person who deserves a scholarship, please get in touch with us!
