What is the Community Leadership Programme?

The Community Leadership Programme

Our Community Leadership Programme (CLP) is a personal development course for young people in the Wakefield district, which gives them an opportunity to take part in life changing experiences to help them reach their full potential and play a positive role in their local communities. Working specifically with Year 10 pupils in the Wakefield district they are recruited through their schools.

Launched in 2006 the course grows more successful every year.  Fully funded by WDH, so no cost to the students or schools.

It takes young people on a journey of self discovery, developing their teamwork and leadership skills while they gain the confidence to achieve their goals. The programme is delivered in partnership with the Outward Bound Trust at locations such as Aberdovey in Wales and Ullswater in the Lake District.

In addition to the Outward Bound Programme, Community Leadership also includes other aspects of engagement with young people, such as:

  • Business mentoring
  • Mock interviews
  • Work experience
  • Careers events
  • Enterprise days in schools
