Driving change for young rural women

Project Empower is national ‘workshop roadtrip’ that will empower teenage girls in rural and remote Australia to achieve their leadership potential. From May to August 2018, we’re driving to towns in every state and territory, to educate about diversity, build self-esteem and encourage young women to embrace their leadership strengths.

Project Empower: a program by Country to Canberra

Country to Canberra runs multiple programs for young rural women.

See our main website for more information about our other incredible opportunities, like our leadership competition, Power Trips, Mentorship Program and Blogger Team.
