Our Young Leaders Award is going from strength to strength and we’re pleased to announce that we now have 8 schools across the North of England running the Award. Over 1300 students from Hull, Liverpool, Wigan, Manchester and York are all getting involved with these exciting awards and are already making a difference in their communities.
As we continue to pilot the Awards with Manor CE Academy (York) and the Archbishop Sentamu Academy (Hull) we’re already seeing some fantastic results. One KS3 student recently commented that she had;
…really enjoyed learning about some of the issues in our society like slavery, racism and how amazing people like William Wilberforce and Mahatma Gandhi wanted to do something about them. I have been inspired and thought very deeply about many of the things we have covered and it has influenced the way I look at things.
Students from The Archbishop Sentamu Academy are beginning to prepare for their community projects and ideas for serving in a local hospice, visiting and serving in a local prison and putting on events in school to benefit the local community are all being explored – very exciting!
The aim of our Awards is to equip young people to ‘be the change they want to see’ in their local communities.
If you''d like to be involved in our tour of Dioceses across the country, then drop us an email and we''ll come and visit you to tell you more about the award!
