About Leaders in Community

Our Vision : We inspire and empower local young people to be active and vocal contributors to the social, economic and cultural well-being of their community.

Our Mission: Through our Youth Leadership and Youth Social Action initiatives, we will provide local young people with training to develop their personal resilience and overcome barriers to progression and equip local young people with the skills and opportunities to speak out about community issues, and challenge inequalities

As an organisation founded and run entirely by young people, for young people, we are able to engage with our beneficiaries as their peers.  We aim to inspire and empower young people to be active and vocal contributors to the social, economic and cultural well-being of their community. Our ‘Youth Leadership Programme’ provides accredited skills training, work experience, advice and guidance by e.g. matching young people with corporate mentors; supporting young people to take up positions on consultative/decision-making forums such as the Local Youth Empowerment Board, which feed into the way our area is run; providing work experience with corporate partners. ‘Youth Social Action’ provides tangible opportunities for young people to tackle the issues which matter to them through e.g. project-based volunteering with our beehives / tending our community garden; creating digital campaigns and capacity building courses for girls/young women. By taking part in these activities we provide young people with tangible opportunities to tackle issues which matter to them most
