Inspiring young Queenslanders to work and find success in the tourism industry

The Young Tourism Leaders program promotes role models to encourage and inspire young people to consider a career in the tourism industry.

Our Leaders have built successful careers in tourism and are keen to share a wealth of knowledge, experience and advice with young people.

They present at schools and engage with vocational and tertiary students, participating in careers events to share stories of their professional journey. Additionally, they promote the diversity of work in tourism and provide valuable insights and advice on how to kickstart a career in tourism.

Our Young Tourism Leaders across the state play an important role in growing Queensland's tourism industry by helping to attract the workforce of the future.

The Young Tourism Leaders program is an initiative of the Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport, supported by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training and the Department of Education.
