Next Gen Ambassadors

There’s a new tribe of young professionals providing fresh perspectives in the age services sector. They are the Next Gen Ambassadors – part of LASA’s new youth initiative, an industry wide program to engage and encourage young professionals to see age services as a dynamic, innovative and life changing career opportunity.

 
Sixteen young leaders sit on the National Ambassador Council, while another 65 Ambassadors are from the SA, VIC & TAS, QLD, NSW & ACT, and WA Councils.
 
They are clinical and non-clinical professionals in a variety of leadership roles who are now providing advice on issues affecting them and their peers, and are advising on youth issues, creating innovative projects, and promoting age services to young Australians.
 

Today LASA is ensuring younger generations are changing their perceptions of aged care by involving them in the industry’s transformation, and ensuring they are part of building solutions that support high quality care and safety of our older adults.
