Monash Leadership Forums began in 2012 to develop leadership skills and opportunities with selected Year 10 students from Melbourne schools and colleges. Forums sponsored by 0808 and allied organisations are hosted by Scotch College – John Monash's school (1878-81).

Students interact with key leaders to consider their leadership at school and in community through examining John Monash' style – always having a plan, knowing all aspects intimately, involving and listening, and following his dictum –

Adopt as your fundamental creed that you will equip yourself for life, not solely for your own benefit but for the benefit of the whole community.
