The Young Leaders Award is a unique active citizenship programme which empowers young people to make a difference in their local community whilst growing in key leadership skills at the same time. The course has been developed by the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust and is delivered across the North of England. Archbishop Holgate’s School was proud to be part of the development of the course and one of the first school’s to deliver the course to all of our Key Stage 3 pupils.
The Key Stage 3 award is an exciting set of materials designed to engage young people not just with faith heroes of the past and the present, but also to engage them with the idea of community and the wider world… and how they can be a part of something much bigger. The course involves students individually making a difference to their local community as well as working collaboratively on a project.
