We believe young people have the power to change the world!

Learn2Lead is our 12-week programme that empowers 14-19 years olds (or up to 25 with additional needs) at the start of their leadership and volunteering journey.

This programme is great if you have the drive to get involved and learn new things. Being a Young Leader is a lot of fun, and will challenge you to try new things and make a difference in your community!

Volunteering will also help you build your CV, and will be sure to impress when you are applying for jobs or further education.

Weeks 1-6:

You will receive volunteering training and take part in a specialised workshop delivered by a local organisation. These will support you as you start your volunteering journey.

Weeks 7-12:

For the second six weeks, you start as a Young Leader. You can volunteer on both our Junior and 11-14s sessions or with other charities and community projects in Manchester. You’ll also now be able to take part in fundraising, social action, offsite trips, and many more exciting opportunities.
