Applications open for Birmingham and West London Leadership Programme

November 27, 2017

UpRising is launching its Leadership Programme in Birmingham and West London in the New Year. 

The Leadership Programme will start in towards the end of January, with applications open now and assessment taking place through the December-January period. We aim to take on 35-40 young people from diverse and under-represented backgrounds who have a passion to make a positive difference in their community.

If this is you, fill in an Expression of Interest form here and we wil be in touch with an application form as soon as possible.

The Programme:

The six month leadership programme offers young people ‘access behind the scenes’ training sessions, fortnightly on Tuesday evenings, with senior leaders across the political, private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

Participants are individually matched with a coach and a mentor and also work with other ‘UpRisers’ to design and deliver a social action campaign on a local issue they are passionate about.

Past programmes have proved hugely popular with 8 out of 10 taking part saying the course had improved their confidence and provided them with the skills to have an impact on the world around them.

Once again, you can apply online by clicking here. Applicants must be aged 19-25, live, work or study in the West London or the Birmingham area (depending on what region you are applying for) and have a passion to make a positive difference in their community.

Applications close on Tuesday the 9th of January 2018 for both Birmingham and West London, with an intended programme start on the Tuesday 23rd January for London and Thursday 25th January for Birmingham. For more information, click here.
