Many of our youth in Canterbury-Bankstown and Western Sydney don’t realise just how many opportunities are out there waiting for them.
From professional opportunities to personal and social growth, there are a myriad of career and lifestyle options available for our young people. This is why the Canterbury Bankstown Chamber of Commerce started this Initiative: CEO for a Day!
The ‘CEO For A Day’ program is a fantastic local initiative.
[CEO For A Day] was great and I learnt very important life skills.
CEO for the Day for 4 hours allowed Xuyen to get a perspective into different fields.

Mona is a future leader if she chooses. She is destined to good things.
I thank the CBCC for delivering this initiative and encourage CEOs, business and community leaders and schools to get involved in this year’s program.
High level introduction for CEO For A Day.
STAND AS AN EXAMPLE
LEARN, ABSORB, BE INSPIRED
Local business leaders, CEOs, and community leaders will volunteer 3 days across 3 terms to mentor an aspiring Year 10 to 12 student interested in their field.
The students will shadow their day and walk in their shoes, broadening their horizons, and inspiring new ambitions.
From daily work activities to community engagements that come with being an industry leader, students will get a taste of what a prospective day as a professional leader might look like for them in their future.
CEO for a Day is designed to tackle the three foremost concerns that students have when they think of work. These are:
By joining our program, students not only gain valuable perspectives on work, leadership, and life, but also connect to the current industry professionals in their mentor’s field. Throughout the day, students will be able to hone their interests and bolster their confidence.
For our youth, the world is their oyster. CEO For A Day will inspire them to dream big whilst gaining insight and knowledge on how to achieve their dreams.
To celebrate our youth initiative “CEO for a Day!” we hosted a special event: CBCC Youth Expo 2023.
This exciting free event inspired and empowered young people aged 14-24 and their families to explore their potential and opportunities for their present and future.
This project was jointly funded by the Commonwealth and the New South Wales Government.
