Year 11 and 12 students talk about change at USQ

YOUNG leaders were at the University of Southern Queensland's Fraser Coast campus on Wednesday to be part of the Change Makers' Forums.

Year 11 and 12 students were invited to be part of the forums which aim to develop students' potential and provide them with further inspiration, resources and support to pursue their own vision for a better future with a pool of $30,000 available each year.

The university asked the region's schools to identify its young leaders to take part in the program.
