UpRising was set-up to address systemic underrepresentation in positions of leadership in communities and work. Since then, they’ve supported young people in communities across the country. They believe that young people are uniquely placed to change the world – youth leadership can tackle pressing social challenges and encourage positive social change.
The aim is to open up pathways to leadership for young adults from diverse and under-represented backgrounds and to equip them with the knowledge, networks, skills and confidence to fulfil their leadership potential, find new opportunities and transform the world around them through social action. All the programmes are free, part-time and digital-only.
To apply you need to be aged 18 to 25 years old. Three programmes are running this year: a Leadership programme; an Environmental Leadership programme; and Fastlaners – which is the employability programme for young people.
