More Messages of Support from The Commonwealth
The Prime Minister of Australia, The Hon Tony Abbott MP:
“I am pleased to provide this message of support for the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust’s launch of the Queen’s Young Leaders Programme.
The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme is a fitting tribute to Her Majesty, who, over 60 years as Head of the Commonwealth, has exemplified the ideals of duty and service.
Her Majesty’s leadership is a symbol of stability and continuity in an ever-changing world. It is an inspiration to us all.
In every corner of the Commonwealth, in every walk of life, there are passionate people inspired by Her Majesty’s example; of service to country and others.
The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme will encourage a new generation to build stronger communities, and it will equip organisations with the means to help young people reach their full potential.
The mentoring and training provided by the Queen’s Young Leaders Programme will build up the skills and confidence of young leaders from across the Commonwealth.
I encourage young leaders to nominate for this programme and I look forward to meeting the young Australians who will participate over coming years.“
