Opportunity for young people


Healthy Living NT Logo

The Board of Healthy Living NT is keen to encourage younger people to join them, to speak about the issues facing them and be a voice on the Board for other young people affected by diabetes. 

We understand that the hectic lifestyle of younger people – busy jobs, lives or young families - means that it is often not possible to take on the time demands of also being on a Board; but we also realise that you are the future of our Association.

So with this in mind, we have developed a CPD program valued at up to $5,000 to support a younger person’s participation on the Board. Being a member of the Board will help you gain learning and development experience in governance and management. It will also give you the opportunity to participate and to share with us a younger person’s perspective on various issues.
