For the fifth consecutive year, City in the Community Melbourne hosted its annual Young Leaders Training Program for Victoria’s aspiring future leaders. The 2021 training program saw our team lead over 50 members of the local community, equipping them with the leaderships skills required to create social change in our local community. One of those leaders was Josephine Mirarchi.
My name is Josephine Mirarchi – and I became a Melbourne City Young Leader in 2021.
I am currently a third-year student at La Trobe University, studying a Bachelor of Business majoring in Marketing and Event Management.
Becoming a Young City Leader has given me the opportunity to make a difference in the community and create a positive social impact in young peoples lives, through football. The program has allowed me to come out of my comfort zone, learn new skills and meet new people. Resulting in an extremely rewarding experience for myself and the young people involved.
My passion for event management transformed into my work at Melbourne City, and allowed me to gain invaluable experience across the community and inclusion space. For example, by learning how events and clinics were coordinated including the safety measures, budgets and number of volunteers involved, to ensure the event remains a success and an enjoyable experience for all.
I look forward to learning much more within this Young City Leaders program that I can further take on board in my future studies and endeavours, to ensure I can be the best version of myself and help make a change and a difference in people’s lives.
