Learn2Lead is a 4 week leadership and volunteering programme for young people aged 14-19 (or up to 25 with additional needs). After three weeks of training, you can start volunteering on our Junior sessions as a Young Leader. You’ll be able to help out in the same way a Volunteer does and you’ll gain great experience working with young people. If you want to give back to the community, but don’t fancy helping out on our Junior sessions, there are volunteering options available elsewhere, for example at The National Football Musuem, North Manchester FM, The Moston Miner’s Community Arts and Music Centre, Turkey Lane and Monsall Community Centre and many more places of interest. There is also a disability awareness workshop for which you receive a certificate, followed by a variety of further training opportunities and trips.

If you would like to sign up to Cohort 1 which starts 6pm, Tuesday 9th January, please fill in the form online here and email it over to Ellie Page. Alternatively you can fill in a paper copy and someone will be in touch with you. Any further questions, please get in touch on 0161 203 5333.

Learn2Lead was initially a community leadership programme funded through Forever Manchester and developed in partnership with various other organisations, including The National Football Museum, North Manchester FM, UpRising, Greater Manchester Higher and many more. The initial project run has come to an end, but it has been such a success that we are going to continue the project into the New Year. The legacy of the initial project has taken the form of the young leaders’ blog, called The Manchester Bee Hive.
