Emerging Leaders

The NAYC Emerging Leaders Programme seeks to develop and empower young people (13-17) through providing essential life skills to reach their full potential. Building on the success of previous years we have developed an exciting programme, blending challenging activities and training sessions to harness personal development over a weekend residential.


‘I have learnt to be more confident. I have also achieved goals that I never thought I would ever do. This has also made me feel proud about myself. This has also boosted my confidence in a different area of my fears.’



The programme will be delivered by the NAYC Youth Development team and we will be staying at one of our own ACUK outdoor residential Centres, benefitting from the excellent instructed activities, fantastic freshly prepared food and comfortable modern accommodation.
