Your volunteering journey will start with an informal group meeting where you’ll get to meet other amazing young people.
You’ll then take part in a series of planning sessions, where you, amongst other Youth Leaders will plan the theme for Xplode Magazine and our Fashion Shoot.
There’ll be an opportunity to plan your social action project (this is where you and others will pick a topic that’s important to you and decide how you want to create positive change in your community).
There will be a whole host of other opportunities for you to get stuck into! For example, taking on leadership roles such as Magazine Editor, Fashion Editor, Social Action Assistant and Social Media Assistant – we’ll provide you with the opportunity to develop skills for your future.
You’ll also get the unique chance to get face-to-face (virtually) with employers in our Industry Insight sessions. Previous hosts have provided our Young Leaders with the knowledge of how to create a personal brand, tips to getting into journalism as well as how to use social media to your advantage!
Finally, prompted by feedback from our past Youth Leaders, we now have dedicated Employ sessions which equip you with the skills to ace CV and job application writing too!
Youth Leads UK is a Licensed Organisation for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. This means you can use your time on our three-month Leadership Programme towards your DofE Award. Read more here.
We’ve teamed up with One Million Mentors to give you virtual one-to-one mentoring which will help you find employment. You can read more on the One Million Mentors website here.
What’s the commitment?
It’s completely free for you to take part! Currently, all our sessions are taking place online and there’ll be something happening every week that’ll last around two hours (in an evening).
