Find Your Power is a five-week intro to leadership and social action for 16-24 year old's.

The Programme

Find Your Power gives you the chance to take positive action on stuff that's happening in your community.

We show you where to start, how to form a team and learn how to make a video campaign to raise awareness on an issue you feel really strongly about. It could be living wage, homelessness, your local green space, your education - anything.

We then hook you up with the people in the know in your local area who can support your campaigns.

You're not on your own though, your local UpRising team and some of our expert friends will help you every step of the way.

 

"It wasn't like school, where you can be made to feel like you don't yet have a grasp of the world or you're too young to understand, so your views don't matter.
Sessions were run by adults who listened to us and valued what we had to say, I now feel like people will listen to me."
Chris, Find Your Power 2015

Detail 

Find Your Power is typically delivered during school/college holidays.

After you finish Find Your Power, we reckon that you'd be a fantastic addition to our Leadership Programme, so we'll offer you a place, without even having to apply

"The young people on the Programme were very inspiring and full of good vibes. It was great to see the cogs turn and lightbulb moments happen."
Danny Fahey, Find Your Power workshop facilitator
