LEAD! A New Youth Leadership Development Programme

Is a six-day introduction to leadership programme for young people aged 11-14 inspired by African arts, culture and heritage.

Each day we’ll introduce the group to different leadership concepts then head into central London to explore Africa’s ancient and colonial past, independence and present-day before looking to the future.

On the final day there will be a graduation ceremony and celebration where the young leaders will present creative self-portraits to convey their learning, experience and dreams.


Our Motivation

We are inspired by young people, their energy, talents, ambition and potential. We know that effective leaders are made through intentional effort, generous investment and a support network. We believe it is the responsibility of those going before them to ‘kick-start’ the development of their leadership skills. If not we, then who?


Next Steps

We launch LEAD! in August 2019. To keep up to date with what is going on, come back to this page.
