To be a Leader is a program that engages the learner in an exploration and understanding of the qualities of leadership. While visiting The Centre of Democracy and the One Mountain, One River, One Sage exhibition (September 2018 to January 2019) at the State Library they will view images of various leaders and discuss how to be a leader and their responsibilities.
