Youth Leadership Programme 2014
Lead, don’t follow… Are you aged between 15-20, regularly volunteering in a youth club or project or want to become a volunteer leader? How about attending a free 6 week evening programme and an outdoor team building day to enhance and learn new skills in becoming a youth leader. This leadership programme will help young people interested in leading to develop their skills as leaders while working on their personal development.

UK & Ugandan PenPals
Nothing empowers youth like making connections with other kids all over the world. We have links with over 8 schools in Mbale, and Kampala, Uganda. The young children in both Mbale & Kampala, the capital city of Uganda, would love to communicate with other children from different parts of the world. If you are a school, college, youth centre or even church where you have a group of young people who wish to make links with other young people from Africa. Please contact us if you would like to begin a pen pal relationship with any of these Ugandan children.
Social Enterprise Academy Programme
In partnership with Worth Unlimited and The Salvation Army in Aston, we are running a Social Enterprise Academy programme. This is a 60 hour OCN accredited programme, evidenced by an online portfolio for each participant, which will equip young people with the skills, knowledge and confidence to establish their own community based enterprise. This will include the recruitment and training of local young volunteers to provide intergenerational community activities. These activities will be in the form of pop up cafes, where local residents can learn new skills whilst building relationships with young volunteers.
These events will happen monthly, at various community locations across Birmingham, so keep checking for updates on the Facebook page or sign up for our regular newsletter. These events are designed to enhance community cohesion and promote dialogue between generations and the different ethnic communities.
