UpRisers leading the way to success!

UpRisers leading the way to success!

December 6, 2017

One of our UpRising Alumni, Will Dyer, has been selected as the Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate for Bethnal Green and Bow.  


He is going up against our chair, co-founder and Labour MP Rushanara Ali!


Will took part in our London Leadership Programme in 2015/16. The Leadership Programme allows you to get to know top UK leaders and discover how they make decisions that affect you; meet the campaigners and organisations fighting for social change and learn first-hand how they do it; create your own social action campaign to make a difference on the issue you care about most; attend hands-on workshops, such as networking, leading teams, media training and receive one-to-one support from a personal coach and a professional mentor in a career of your choice.


Will stated:


“Uprising was great in helping to build the confidence of someone just starting out in their career and feeling overwhelmed. The people I meet whilst doing Uprising are still good friends, the support network that you build was a real help during the election. The young people that do Uprising are as ambitious as you are and they get the challenges that young people in a high-pressured work environment can face.”
