Our Collaborative Leadership Tables
The Collaborative Leadership Tables are Lighthouse’s community decision-making forums. They are made up of about 50 passionate community members who are committed to leading change to improve wellbeing and educational outcomes for young people from conception to career. They are a mechanism to support the work of Lighthouse to facilitate and enable strengthened connections throughout our community.
There are currently five tables: Healthy & Ready for School; Learning & Thriving in Primary School; Learning & Thriving in Secondary School; Launching Successfully to Work or Study and our Youth Leadership Advisory Table (“Youth Empowerment Leaders”).
The Tables' purpose is to identify and drive strategic initiatives to enable young people to thrive in Greater Shepparton. Our Youth Table gives Lighthouse the opportunity to engage with young people in a meaningful and ongoing way and help ensure we focus on the work most likely to support young people and lead to positive change.
Due to shared work priorities the Healthy & Ready for School table and the Learning & Thriving in Primary School table have merged. Similarly the Learning & Thriving in Secondary School table and Launching Successfully to Work or Further Study table are working closley together.
