We believe leadership is about having the drive and curiosity to tackle tough challenges, plus the ability to help others to do their best.

Future Foundations is offering young people from the UK and Ireland the opportunity to embark on transformational leadership experiences in the UK and in Ghana! Through a range of leadership programmes, young people will get the chance to step out of their comfort zone, explore their leadership potential, and meet inspirational, like-minded peers in exciting new environments.

Students can attend one or all of the leadership experiences, each challenging and helping participants become leaders in their lives and within society.
