Community leadership program

What is the Community Leadership Program?

The Community Leadership Program (CLP) aims to create community capacity building in the City of Marion.

The program is made up of interactive workshops, working with our program convenors, Council staff and various community leaders.

More information about the 2022 program will be launched soon.


The City of Marion will be seeking a group of emerging or existing community leaders to be part of the Community Leadership Program for 2022.

We will seek applications from individuals that are:

  • Community volunteers
  • Members of community groups and organisations who are interested in developing their local community
  • Individuals who live, work or play within the City of Marion, that have a keen interest in building their leadership skills
  • Community members who would like training in project management to get a project off the ground


This program is funded by the City of Marion, so it is free to participate. All that we require is your commitment to complete the entire program, organise your own transport to and from venues and childcare, if applicable.

Feedback from previous year's program

"I think this program not only taught you how to communicate and become a successful leader, it also was very useful to make you self-aware on a personal level. It was an amazing course. The facilitators and special guests definitely helped create a comfortable environment to be able to open up and be okay with being vulnerable."

"Highly recommend! A power packed skill and confidence building course that offers opportunity to connect with like minded community passionate people and build relationships, programmes and well anything we can that helps make Marion a better city to live work and play!"

"Great opportunity to feed one another’s passion, curiosity, commitment to community; and to develop a supportive local network of doers!"
