London is a fantastic city full of opportunities but for young people growing up here it is not without its challenges. We believe that young people, when given the opportunity and support have the passion, talent and commitment to help us overcome these challenges.
Now in its second year, City Leaders is London Youth’s flagship social action programme. Between September 2017 and August 2018 around 250 young people from over 25 member organisations will take part in a four stage programme designed to develop and enhance the confidence, networks and leadership skills of participants.
City Leaders is an open access programme, enabling young people from groups beyond the ‘usual suspects’ to take part. Projects delivered by participating groups are not restricted in theme, but must display a tangible benefit to other young people and the community at large.
The programme brings together stakeholders from across London, strengthening the city’s voluntary sector by investing in the next generation of civil society leaders. You can read the evaluation of the pilot year of City Leaders here.
We will take groups of young people through three progressive stages, starting from where they are at, and challenging them to further their skills at each stage. Examples below are taken from award winners from the inaugural year of City Leaders
We are now at capacity for the 2017/18 programme. If you are interested in taking part in future years, or have any questions, please contact Sophie Hewitt on 0207 549 8817 or email email@example.com.
