EXCEEDED THEIR EXPECTATIONS
WILL ACTIVATE LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLES THEY LEARNT
HELPED THEM GROW AS A LEADER

“Mandurah Baptist College has been fortunate to partner with GLS Next Gen for just over a year now, and our Year 10 and 11 students are currently planning their second leadership conference.

We got together as a team last year and decided that we wanted to use the GLS resources and tools to organise an annual leadership conference for Year 6 students in our local community, the Bindjareb region. The response from local schools exceeded our expectations and we had about 60 students attend the conference. The Next Gen team were wonderful in supporting and coaching the students (in person and online), they even flew in to assist on the day.

As an educator, I saw the student team take ownership and they were able to showcase their individual strengths and talents. If your school is passionate about student leadership, and you are actively looking for ways to give students agency, then I could not recommend this program more highly.”

Rees Davis

Executive Principal of King’s Christian College, Rees shares how the GLNA Next Gen provides training for tomorrow’s generation and equips them to lead effectively.

I remember sitting, listening to the speakers from Next Gen and realising that I have a place. There is a purpose for my strengths, a reason for my heart for people and finding a way to engage those strengths is my responsibility. It didn’t just open my eyes and heart to the path of leadership, but also how I can have real, deep and wide influence. I love GLS!!!!

Bethany’s Next Gen Story

A student from Swan Christian College in Perth experienced GLNA Next Gen and it changed the vision she had for her school.

As educators, we understand the intrinsic value of investing into the leaders of our tomorrow, and often shout out in celebration at the potential and capacity of our young people. But, do you know what has an even greater impact? Recognising the opportunity, taking that potential and capacity, and multiplying it! The GLNA Next Gen does exactly that - EVERY SINGLE YEAR!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When can my organisation host a GLS Next Gen?

Upon purchasing a GLS Next Gen package, you can host your event at a time that best suits you! Your access to the content is valid for the remainder of the calendar year, ie. until December 31st

What is the suggested format?

GLS Next Gen consists of four 75-minute sessions, each exploring a different leadership theme. Schools typically host their event as a one day event (9am – 3pm or standard school hours), or spaced out over a couple of days (camps and retreats) or across several weeks (embedded into single lessons). Youth groups and community organisations may wish to host a one-off special event and encourage their young people to invite friends to participate.

Does GLS Next Gen support school curriculum?

GLS Next Gen supports education and learning. It is aligned to the Year 9 and 10 HPE Curriculum. For faith-based schools, it can also support learning in classes such as Religious Education and Christian Living.

Does each package include Processing Tools (eg: notebook)?

YES! We provide a high-quality notebook and other dynamic processing tools to assist participants to maximise their learning. These resources are available in a digital format and ​are located on our GLS Next Gen Event Tool Kit. For the notebook, we recommend that you provide printed copies to your attendees.

Are there any minimum requirements to become a GLS Next Gen Host?

No – If you have the passion to engage, equip and empower young people to grow in their leadership, we will provide the resources and support for you to host a GLS Next Gen at your own venue and with your own team.

Do you offer an alternate payment method?

Purchases via our website are our preference to expedite the process of providing you with event materials. We can however arrange to invoice you for direct debit payment if you prefer. Please complete this form.

Can I speak with someone to determine which package best suits my organisation?

Absolutely, we’d love to assist! Contact us to arrange a phone call or Zoom call via nextgen@globalleadership.org.au

What is the speaker line-up?

We consult with educators and young people to present the most age-appropriate and exceptional content from a range of world-class speakers. ​These speakers are reviewed annually and the GLS Next Gen is updated with fresh content each year.

What is the registration cost to attendees?

Having purchased one of our packages, you may choose to present the GLS Next Gen free of charge or pass on an appropriate fee for the purpose of enhancing the attendee experience (to cover costs such as catering, production and printing the notebook). ​

Who is responsible for running the event including ticketing, marketing and catering?

Our packages include all the tools you need to run a successful event with your own team and in your own venue.

Should the event be run by adults or young people?

The GLS Next Gen is designed to be adult coached and young person run. So, invite your young people to become actively involved, including areas such as production, catering, and up-front roles.

What training is provided?

You will be provided with a training manual and ongoing support from our Next Generation Engagement Officer.

When will I receive the programming content?

Shortly after purchasing your GLS Next Gen package, you will receive access to all pre-recorded speaker and event content. The Event Toolkit contains 4 x 75-minute video files and the Premium Toolkit contains this as well as an expanded choice of speakers which enables you to build your own unique experience.
