U.S. Mission to Australia: Young Pacific Leaders Conference 2017/2018

Deadline: 11 August 2017

U.S. Embassy in Canberra, Australia has announced an open competition for U.S. organizations interested in submitting proposals to organize a comprehensive program designed to provide emerging Pacific leaders with the skills and knowledge they need to become leaders in the region’s economic and civic development.  As a Pacific nation, the United States has long been committed to working with partners in the region to ensure continued regional security, as well as economic growth and development.  This program for young leaders in the Pacific will create ties across the Pacific to ensure that we are better prepared to address challenges together in the future.

The State Department has convened a Pacific Youth Conference each year for the past four years, taking place in American Samoa, Samoa, New Zealand, and Hawaii, all with the goal of building leadership capacity and creating ties among emerging leaders from across the South Pacific region.

The conference should emphasize experiential learning and capacity building in order to equip participants with the tools they need for success.  The location of the conference should be selected based on needs of the program, including ease of travel. The Embassy’s preference is Honolulu, but Sydney or Melbourne would be considered.

Goals

Goals of the conference should include:

  • Developing the ability of youth in the Pacific Islands, and indigenous youth in Australia and New Zealand to become economic and civil society leaders who cooperate across the region to address difficult issues.
  • Ensuring that emerging Pacific Islands leaders see the United States as a partner in solving regional and global challenges.
  • Building a shared Pacific identity among emerging leaders.
