As part of the ABC’s Heywire program, which “puts young Australians at the centre of the conversations that shape their communities”, applications are now open for the ABC’s 2022 Trailblazers program which showcases the stories of regional Australia’s brightest new leaders.

Trailblazers is an opportunity for people, aged between 18 and 28 who are driving positive social change projects in their regional communities and to have their work celebrated nationally.

Successful applicants receive a broad range of support that includes having their story told on the ABC, exclusive access to the Trailblazer Development Fund and mentoring programs to help empower young regional leaders to share their stories and build their leadership capacity.
