The Future Self program is proudly supported by the Department of Education and Training.

This initiative aims to enhance and support the learning, transition and aspirational mindset of rural and regional students at the upper primary and secondary school levels. The aim of the program is to build the career aspirations of students by increasing exposure to mentoring, role models and post school pathways. Industry Ambassadors will support students to achieve a greater understanding of employment opportunities and career pathways through school engagement activities such as school presentations, workplace tours, Q&A sessions and supporting a student on work placement.


Ms. Kelly Hicks


Emergency Services


Police Officer


My name is Kelly Hicks and I am a Senior Constable for Victoria Police. I have been a Police Officer for nearly 10 years. I currently work in Latrobe and predominately work with youth and absolutely love my role. Our job is very difficult but can be rewarding at times. I am also a CFA volunteer and have a young family so I'm busy out side of work too.
