WHAT IS THE COASTERS?

The Coasters is a group of like-minded young people who live and work on the Cradle Coast, and wish to influence the region’s future. Through regular events – Friday morning coffees, Friday arvo drinks, a Winter Symposium and other events – they share skills, knowledge and experience to raise aspirations and improve access to career development and mentoring. Most ‘Coasters’ are between 18 and 35 y.o, however there is no age limit; we’re for the young and young at heart!

WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH KING ISLAND?

Thanks to the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund, King Islanders have the opportunity to get involved. The first stage of the project will see successful applicants attend The Coasters 2019 Winter Symposium in Stanley, July 19 – 21. The second stage of the project will see existing Coasters from north-west Tasmania visit King Island to share skills, knowledge and experiences and help get The Coasters up and running on King Island.

SELECTION PROCESS

Places are limited, and a selection panel will determine the successful applicants based on both the quality of their application and achieving the right mix of people to make this project a success. Contact us via email to find out more or attend the information session. Participants will need to be available to travel to Stanley July and return to King Island July 21. Follow up date for King Island TBC.
