Marcus Oldham Rural Leadership Program

The Marcus Oldham Rural Leadership Program is offered each year and Rural Youth support two current members to attend the five-day course in Melbourne. The Marcus Oldham Rural Leadership Program commenced in 1992 and is recognised as one of the best and longest running rural leadership programs in the nation. It has developed a strong reputation in the agricultural and agribusiness sector, attracting support from a wide range of industry and rural community groups from a diverse regional background. The program is an intense five-day workshop conducted on the Marcus Oldham College campus. If you are interested in applying to attend this workship visit the 'Forms' tab in the member portal.
