Tourism Ambassador Program

About the Program

Here at YTN, we’re passionate about guiding young people toward rewarding careers within Victoria’s thriving tourism industry. This year, we want to spotlight diverse career avenues in tourism to inspire the next generation of industry leaders.


Together with content creators at Milkbar Digital we’re creating fun, engaging stories about young leaders in the industry. We’ll also be holding in-person professional development events to showcase our ambassadors in a series of panel discussions, workshops, and keynote speaking events.
