FREE Young People's Places on Leadership Residential with UK Youth

Oct 15, 2019

Avon Tyrell

Thanks to their generous supporters UK Youth have an exciting opportunity to offer FREE places on their leadership residential programme, Releasing Youth Potential, Building Leaders, taking place at Avon Tyrrell, UK Youth’s outdoor centre in the New Forest National Park. 

Aimed at groups of disadvantaged young people aged 14+ their two-night residential leadership programme focuses on the key characteristics of good leadership, delivers a combination of outdoor activities and an ASDAN accredited Youth Achievement Award to develop young people skills.

*Their next round of applications will close on 1st November 2019*
By participating in their programme, individuals will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop their individual leadership skills, helping them be more confident to motivate and influence; 
  • Learn the art of building relationships, working together, defining identities and achieving tasks effectively. 


Releasing youth potential, building leaders encourages individuals to think in new and creative ways and see first hand the result their decisions and actions have on those around them. Individuals must quickly learn to work together and are encouraged to give and receive supportive constructive feedback that allows them to quickly put learning into practice.  Through learning about their own capacity for leadership young people will be more receptive to change and have a larger stake in building themselves a brighter future, improving their opportunities and social mobility.
