Luminosity Youth Summit – a Not for Profit Org facilitating a Youth leadership and Excellence Summit held in July each year at the Glasshouse & Rydges Port Macquarie. This will be our 6th year running the summit with over 1500 young people between the ages of 15 – 25 experiencing the summit to date. The summit is a dynamic three day program of workshops and keynotes featuring athletes, creatives, scientists, artists, philanthropists and academics sharing their stories.

Each year the overarching summit theme is Dangerous Ideas for Success….and each of the three days has a theme of which 2018’s are:
Inspire| Challenge| Excel

The format is 22 inspiring speakers from all over the globe who are at the top of their field, thought leaders and cultural advocates from all over the world , who are flown in to the Glasshouse on the mainstage and masterclass rooms to conduct a TEDX style event for young people between 15 – 25. We have students that attend from all over Australia and New Zealand with only 350 spaces available each year.

We offer 100 positions out of the 350 places to disadvantaged scholarship students encouraging positivity, leadership, entrepreneurship, and discussing youth mental health.

This summit is 100% our PASSION project! We are voluntary event crew of twelve business people, media, event managers, education and health professionals who come together to create this 3 day summit to benefit young people from across the country.

I admit I kept brushing off invites to the summit at my TAFE but a day before they persisted and I eventually gave in. This month had already been a month where I’ve been stuck so this event and the speakers have helped me spring out of this rut.
I'm so incredibly thankful.
Excited to live out my dream.
Learning to be less scared and go!
