The Luminosity Youth Summit is an event that engages, entertains and challenges young people. Integral to its success is the involvement of our future leaders in every step of the process.
Luminosity not only brings together an array of inspiring speakers and high-profile guests, it also provides a much-needed forum for more than 350 young people to listen, learn and laugh whilst looking to the future.
After speaking with delegates following last year’s Luminosity Youth Summit, I was pleased to hear that many of the young people who attended have already set their sights on exciting careers - many within the growing health sector.
Our own delegates who took part in the three-day Luminosity experience returned full of praise and positive feedback. Their infectious enthusiasm for the event was felt for many months afterwards.
This year we have continued our commitment to Luminosity and we are very pleased to be able to present one of the event’s key speakers, Dr Matt James, who is a valued staff member of the Mid North Coast Local Health District, working as an Intern at Port Macquarie Base Hospital.
Congratulations to the inspiring, insightful and energetic group of locals who work very hard behind the scenes to organise the Luminosity Youth Summit. The professionalism and enthusiasm with which every member of the Luminosity Committee approaches every aspect of this event should be applauded.
The Mid North Coast Local Health District is proud of its role in presenting the Luminosity Youth Summit and we look forward to continuing to support this event into the future.

- Dr Muyesser Durur - Luminosity Youth Inc Patron
Luminosity Youth Inc. is about inspiring and lifting the leaders of tomorrow. We want to provide all youth with the opportunities to be able to develop their skills, knowledge and confidence so that they are fully equipped to:
Be the best version of themselves and live the life they aspire to
Achieve and exceed their career aspirations
It is important that they have access to high quality resources, speakers and opportunities to inspire and engage youth. Not only do we want to enhance the profile of already existing programs available to youth, we also want to develop and implement additional programs. A key program that Luminosity Youth Inc. is passionate about and is currently developing for launch in 2013 is an annual Youth Summit to be held in Port Macquarie.
Why are we doing it?
The Luminosity Youth Inc. working group is comprised of people that are passionate about supporting youth in their personal and professional development. Youth are our future and so it is imperative that we provide them with the building blocks, support and encouragement they need to grow into the best version of themselves. This Youth Summit is an invaluable opportunity to contribute and invest in our future.
Our Ultimate Goal
Our ultimate goal is to develop and host "a national Youth Summit challenging today's generation to become tomorrow's leaders". This Summit will be held in Port Macquarie the big picture is to have youth attendees not just from the local region but from all over Australia. We want Port Macquarie to be considered to be the inspirational hub for youth from all walks of life.
The aim of the Summit is to:
Inspire youth to follow their dreams
Challenge them to be the best person they can be and take a chance on themselves
Excel and exceed in their chosen journey
We want to provide all youth with a safe environment where they can develop the confidence to unlock their potential and shine their inner light.
This Summit is a great opportunity for youth from all walks of life to come together to start their journey where they will learn from and grow with one another.
The Summit Theme
The theme for the Summit is 'Dangerous Ideas' i.e. Thinking big! Daring to dream and create, taking calculated risks to achieve success. The aim is to provide participants with the skills, knowledge and confidence to 'just do it' and take a risk to achieve success. The youth will be challenged to create dangerous ideas for the future.
New ideas and strategies for business, education, environment, charity and ultimately personal success
What are the risks they will need to take to achieve their dreams?
What is their journey going to need to involve in order to successfully execute their dangerous idea?
What do they need to do to mitigate the risks involved and achieve success?
The age group that are being target for this event are youth between the ages of 15 years to 25 years of age.
The committee will be targeting those that attend school, those that are already in the workforce and those attending University or TAFE. These participants will be drawn from across regional & metropolitan Australia with a firm focus on drawing new ideas and talents to the region whilst nurturing and elevating our own young Hastings leaders.
Recruitment will include:
A School Road Show
Presentations at Business Breakfasts
Cold calling to businesses
Small Luminosity events in the lead up to the Summit
The Committee volunteering at youth events such as FOTSUN with the ability to promote the summit
Anticipated number of attendees
The targeted number of attendees is 300.
When is it on?
The Summit will be held from the 20th to the 22nd of July as this is a quiet period for Port Macquarie and does not conflict with exam periods for those studying.
