Young Tourism Leaders

Young Tourism Leaders are role models who champion career opportunities in the Queensland tourism industry.

Through our Program, the leaders inspire Queensland’s next generation to pursue a career in tourism.

Our Leaders have found success early and have a wealth of knowledge, experience and advice. They share personal and professional stories related to their career journey so far, and highlight the everyday benefits a role in tourism can offer.

The role of a Young Tourism Leader includes:

  • making presentations in schools
  • engaging with vocational and tertiary students
  • taking part in careers events
  • networking within the tourism industry.

Leaders work across all regions of Queensland and exceed in a variety of different roles highlighting the diversity of opportunities for a career in tourism.

The Young Tourism Leaders are passionate about helping shape future career pathways for young people and are keen to make an impact on the future development of Queensland tourism.
