Posted: 07-Feb-2020 by Maccabi VIC

As President of Maccabi, I’m excited to tell you that in 2020 the Maccabi NextGen LEAD program will be entering its 3rd year and to date 24 young people have participated and completed the program empowering our next generation to become exceptional leaders within the Maccabi Victoria organisation by providing them with important tools, training and resources.

At Maccabi, we understand the importance of connecting with the next generation and we are looking for community minded people who have an interest in contributing to a Maccabi sporting club, Board or Committee or other exciting Maccabi events and projects.

The Maccabi NextGen LEAD leadership program involves a series of six evening workshops that run for two hours - held once a month - between April and Sept/Oct 2020.

Each session will be presented by Community or Industry influencers and has been designed specifically for Maccabi. The program aims to improve the young person’s leadership capabilities and show them how to use their influence, to positively impact people and their working environments. Examples of workshops offered in 2019 include the popular ‘Values Journey’, ‘Recognising your Individual Leadership Style’, and ‘Philanthropy, Innovation and Design Thinking’.

“Through the Maccabi NextGen LEAD program, I learned to be aware of any unconscious bias I possess. I learned how to be a more effective leader in all facets – particularly communication and leadership style" – Nic Herskope –-20 year-old Graduate of 2019 Maccabi LEAD program
