Developed to complement SLSWA’s Youth Program, the Youth Leaders Program (YLP) offers youth members the opportunity to formally record their experiences and service, and receive recognition for doing so.

The YLP entails three levels – Bronze, Silver, and Gold – for youth members to work towards achieving. Each level stipulates certain requirements and experiencing of various roles associated with surf lifesaving. In many cases, this will also complement and add value to school-based programs of service.

By creating well-rounded members with broad experiences across a range of disciplines, we will ensure that surf life saving offers ‘something for everyone’ and lifelong participation pathways for all.

Participants have the opportunity to work towards achieving an internationally recognised Award

Due to the unique nature and diversity of surf life saving’s activities, we are delighted to be able to link our YLP to an internationally recognised Award, namely the Duke of Edinburgh International Award. Many of the things participants will be doing as part of the YLP will also fulfil the requirements of the Award. This is not only something to strive towards but something that would look great on anyone’s resume.
