How do I register my students?
To register your students for this unique opportunity, please complete the registration by clicking ‘Register Now’ above.  yLead will provide a link for students to provide dietary, medical and other personal information closer to the event.

Who will be looking after the students?
The yLead team will supervise students throughout the entire conference experience.  Males and females will be housed in supervised accommodation overnight. Students requiring leave from the conference will need to provide written permission from their parent/guardian.

As a staff member, am I required to attend?
School staff are not required to attend the event.  However, we are more than happy to welcome you throughout the conference.  We strongly encourage you or appropriate staff/executives to attend ASLC on Day 3. On this day conference participants will be led through a vision and goal setting workshop. It is a great opportunity for you to sit down with your students and work together on building a strong 12month leadership vision for your school.

Can I send students that have not or may not be elected into leadership positions?
Yes! ASLC is an incredible experience for all senior students. The conference equips all senior students with great strategies to maximise their final year of high school.

Do names of students need to be known at time of registration?
No. You can register numbers of students once registration opens, specific names and student details are due on Friday 10th November 2017.

Is there a maximum or minimum number of students I can register?
No. It is however a great conference for a number of student leaders to experience together. Schools send anywhere from 4 elected leaders to a pool of 14 students. When a group of students experience ASLC together they become a more united team that has a greater ability to implement their ideas and share their knowledge with others back at school.

I found the conference experience so eye opening and inspirational. I’ve learnt new things about not only leadership but life and how I can apply it to my life and leadership role.

Gloria Scotaga - Family Vice Captain - St Francis College Crestmead

This conference has given me the tools I need to be an effective leader. Before I arrived, I was looking forward to my new role as a leader, but wasn’t confident in my abilities to lead. This conference has been a positive experience to boost my confidence and belief in my abilities.

School Captain, Padua College Brisbane

I have worked closely in our leadership preparation at Burnside State High School for over 15 years and I have been consistently pleased and proud of our leadership teams with their commitment, enthusiasm, and level of engagement on the return to school after their experience at the conference.

Amazing, so good to network with other leaders and captains. It has given me lots of inspiration and strategies to use at my school.

Just awesome! I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity. I have so much more knowledge and a new look at the way I approach things.

The conference was challenging and targeted all aspects of leadership which has definitely helped me to become the leader I always hoped to be.

I found it interesting that I came in shy and overwhelmed but am now more confident and will continue to step out of my comfort zone
