Future Leaders is a personal development programme for 18-30-year-olds who are not in education, training or employment, or who are underemployed. The two-day programme is based around the idea that leadership starts from within, and is designed to help participants understand what makes a good leader, to identify their own strengths, and to build their confidence.
Here is some feedback from the course in London:
“I walked in not knowing anyone and am leaving feeling confident, ambitious, and with inner strength and wisdom. Confidence is what we young people need!”
“It’s really eye opening and uplifting. It was what I needed to motivate me.”
“This programme has helped me to recognise what’s been holding me back.
1 Day event is on: Wednesday 1st April 2020
