Young Leaders

The Young Leaders Award, part of the Archbishop of York Youth Trust, is a unique active citizenship programme which empowers young people to make a difference in their local community whilst growing in key leadership skills. The Award focuses specifically on developing students' leadership and character skills in preparation for life after school. Students explore how they can be 'the change they want to see' in their communities and practically make a difference through social action and volunteering.

Young Leaders Award is designed to:

  • Build leadership and character skills

  • Grow confidence, teamwork, resilience and care for others

  • Empower students to serve their communities through volunteering
