National Young Leaders Days

Leaders are often made, not simply born. We are dedicated to sparking the leadership potential that’s inside every young person through practical, inspirational events and leadership resources.

National Young Leaders Day is the largest and longest running leadership event for primary and intermediate school students. These large scale annual events aim to develop student leadership. Since 2001, more than 110,000 students have been empowered to fulfill their dreams and become great leaders at a National Young Leaders Day in New Zealand.
