Young Leader Essentials

Young Leader Essentials is a One Day or One/Two Evening Programme for young leader and volunteers aged 14-25yrs across Scotland.  It is a bespoke programme run in each session as a thematic approach, and can be tailored or designed to meet the needs of individual or regional groups/organisations.

During January to March 2017, we are seeking organisations and groups to host Young Leader Essentials to undertake a 3 Workshop Programme including:


  • Generation Code - Introduction to Coding Skills and Technology
  • Money for Life - Financial Awareness Skills for Young People 
  • First Aid Ready - Emergency First Aid Awareness

The Young Leaders Essentials programme runs 6.00pm - 9.00pm with 3 x 1hr Introductory Workshops or if a day programme is available 3 x 1.5hr workshops can be delivered. 

If you have a group of 16-20 young people or network of young people, and have a space that could hold 3 different workshops, then we can come to you and deliver Young Leader Essentials in partnership.  We also have a range of other workshops available, upon request and can tailor the workshops to suit the needs of the young leaders/volunteers taking part.
