iLEAD - a world of opportunity
iLEAD is an extra-curricular leadership program that provides University of Newcastle students with valuable skills in leadership, international awareness and community work – both overseas and at home.
For students who don’t want to travel overseas, they can still participate in iLEAD and get the full leadership experience by helping out local groups, organisations and international students.
As part of the program, students also have the opportunity to attend skill-building lectures and presentations from well-known and inspirational speakers such as Malcolm Turnbull.
Student Brooke Muirhead (pictured) said iLEAD gave her critical thinking skills and challenged her perception of the world.
“The first skill-building lecture I went to was on climate change. I found it quite confronting but it made me take a step back and realise there are some very relevant, global issues,” she said.
