UpRising Leadership

UpRising Leadership

UpRising is a national youth leadership development organisation. We are recognised at Government-level as a pioneering charity championing the critical issues surrounding diversity, social mobility and equality.

Our important work provides routes to leadership and employment for 16-25 year olds who have talent, but lack opportunity. The mission is to break the cycle of unrepresentative power in the UK, by developing new, community-minded and socially-conscious leaders; so that our future decision-makers truly represent our diverse communities.

Our work is delivered through a number of different programmes, these include:

Leadership and Environmental Leadership: A nine month part-time programme for 18-25 year olds. It is designed to give young people the knowledge, networks, skills, and confidence to fulfill their leadership potential. Participants have a range of learning sessions followed by experiential leadership training and mentoring.

Fastlaners: Our eight day employability programme for 18 โ€“ 25 year olds. It is designed to build on existing experience or qualifications to kick start young peopleโ€™s careers. The programme equips participants with the soft skills and knowledge needed to improve their job prospects in order to find meaningful employment.

Find Your Power: Targeted at 16 โ€“ 18 year olds as a five-week introduction to leadership and social action; designed to inspire young people to stand up for what they believe in and make an impact in their local community. Young people gain soft skills and confidence to pursue their dreams.
