The Leadership Programme involves ‘access behind the scenes’ sessions with some of the UK’s most senior leaders. The programme offers participants a unique first-hand view of the way that political, business, public sector and community organisations work together to makes decisions that shape our lives.

Through this programme we equip young people with the knowledge, networks, skills and confidence to reach their leadership potential and take social action on issues they care about.

Each participant is individually matched with a coach and/or mentor who supports them on a one to one basis throughout their time on the programme. All participants then work with other UpRisers to design and deliver a social action campaign on an issue they are passionate about.

The Leadership Programme is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and The Tudor Trust.
