Description:

Are you aged 19-25 and are passionate about changing your community and Britain for the better? 

 

The UpRising Leadership Programme is now recruiting 60 young people for our 2010-2011 cohort, and our 2010-2011 Application is now posted on www.uprising.org.uk. Deadline for applications is Friday 14 May 2010.

 

Developed by the Young Foundation, UpRising’s mission is to open pathways to leadership for talented young adults from diverse backgrounds and to equip them with the skills, knowledge, networks, confidence and power to transform their communities and Britain for the better.

 

The part-time programme runs over the course of one year for young adults aged 19-25 who live, work or study in the London boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Newham, or Tower Hamlets.  UpRising offers young people the opportunity to:

 

  • Gain leadership skills for their future careers
  • Organise for social change and contribute to their communities
  • Join a mutually supportive community of UpRisers, mentors, staff, and alumni
  • Learn about the issues affecting their communities by going behind-the-scenes to major UK institutions
  • Take up leadership opportunities to serve their communities and Britain
  • Stay involved as alumni, helping to build the UpRising movement and a new generation of leaders across Britain
