Activate is an eight-week program for emerging leaders to explore the foundations of leadership and gain confidence, knowledge, skills and strategies to lift their leadership capacity for personal, professional and community benefit. Participants develop a strategic understanding of the challenges facing the Geelong city-region and are inspired and challenged by a broad range of information and guest speakers. Activate uses both experiential and adult learning principles to provide an engaging mix of learning experiences.
Weekly program events, including workshops, site visits, guest speakers, reflection opportunities and other learning based activities ensure that participants are stimulated and motivated in their leadership development journey.
The CfG currently run two Activate programs per year.
“Being part of the program was literally life changing for me, even more than I realised at the time of completing it – and I can’t praise it enough. So I really hope that as many people as possible get to experience the benefits of the program and that it continues for a long time!”

Due to popular demand, we have had to close recruitment for our second program, Activate 8. However, we will be offering a third program for 2019 and we are now accepting applications for Activate 9!
Activate 9 will run from 10 October 2019 – 28 November 2019. For further information please contact the CfG administration on 03 5227 8075.
