Want to make a difference in your community but don't know how?
Then UpRising is for you!
UpRising is a leadership programme for 19-25 year olds. Our mission is to open pathways to power for talented young adults from diverse backgrounds. By developing the knowledge, skills, networks and confidence you need, UpRising will help you to become a leader who can transform your community for the better.
UpRising is looking for talented 19-25 year olds who have an interest in making change happen in their community.
We are recruiting in East London in the areas of Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney and Barking and Dagenham.
Deadline: Friday the 13th of September
We’ll put you through a nine month (part-time) skills and knowledge programme, which will include the design and delivery of social action campaign where you work with fellow UpRisers to tackle a real social issue in your area. The programme is intensive but it is also designed around you. Our sessions take place in the evening so you can fit UpRising around your work, study or other commitments.
“When I joined UpRising, I didn’t feel I had a say about what went on in my local community. Through UpRising I visited local projects and learnt about how they work. I am now a Trustee at the Bedford Open Door service, I am working as a self-employed mentor at a school, and I aim to stand as a local Councillor at the local elections.”
