Young Leaders

You are here:

Trinity College will not be running any Young Leaders Programs, or hosting short programs, in 2023.


Trinity has made the difficult decision to put the Young Leaders Program on hiatus. 

At this stage we have no clear date as to when this will return. We understand that this is disappointing news for all our students who had been looking forward to taking part in any upcoming programs. Any updates will be posted here.

What is Young Leaders?

The Young Leaders Program (YLP) began in 2001 at Trinity College, the University of Melbourne. The program provides students aged 14 to 17 years inclusive with the opportunity to live on campus at Trinity College, the University of Melbourne's oldest residential college, and join lectures and workshops with other like-minded young leaders. Throughout YLP, participating students are guided and mentored by a team of university students.

YLP is a transformative experience for many students, who go on to describe the program as life-changing, inspiring and memorable. Some credit it as being one of the best weeks of their lives.

YLP is designed to allow students to choose from academic streams that best suit their future career ambitions, with the opportunity to join the program for one or two weeks.
