Event description


You're invited to step up and be counted as food system future-shaper with Upstart, the Youth Food Movement’s community training program to build the capacity of young people to be change makers in the world of food and agriculture.

Upstart isn’t an ordinary ‘launchpad’. It's a program that's about providing young people (18-35yr olds) with the environment they need to ‘step up’. As a participant, you’ll be working with an awesome group of fellow movers and shakers to co-design, develop and organise projects, building skills which not only help you run awesome events, but which you can take out and apply in the world, wherever it takes you.

The Session Two program kickstarts this August with the Welcome Bootcamp, 2 days of concentrated interactives and workshops that will guide you and your new team to design your own community food event, and be ready to roll in making it happen by the end of the weekend. Prior to the Bootcamp we'll provide you with a welcome reading and reflection pack so you can come prepared and we can make the days as interactive as possible.

We'll email you the location and exact start and end times in the week leading up to the Bootcamp. For now, please keep 9am-5pm both days blocked out in your diary.

NOTE: The administration fee for participation in Upstart is integrated into your registration for this Bootcamp. In buying your ticket, you'll be officially registered for Upstart in Session Two.

The sessions will cover basic skills and principles of project management and event design. We'll jump straight into applying for most of the sessions, where you'll be working both individually and deciding collectively on your approach.

You'll also walk away with a working understanding of food puns and how to harness them to change the world. Seriously. This is not a drill.

For many of you, this will also be the first time you'll be meeting the team in your local chapter. This is why we've got two days (with our legendary lunches) to get to know your fellow changemakers.

The workshop will be led by YFM staff, and chapter co-leaders (all of whom participated in Session One). Yep, we're for and BY young people.

You can find FAQs and an info pack on the Upstart Homepage.

NOTE: This workshop is a core element of the Upstart Program, meaning program participants are required to take part. If for any reason you're unable to make it to the time and date, but still would like to participate in the program, please contact Thea Soutar ASAP on thea@youthfoodmovement.org.au.
