Leaders in Training
Leaders in Training help develop youth aged 15-17 years of age as leaders. Young people have role models and mentors who can have a positive impact on their lives as they grow in their desire and ability to be a positive force within their local community.
To help inspire young people to become positive leaders not only in the youth club that they attend but also their community, we encourage them to get involved in the various programmes that we offer. These programmes range from our YES/YES+ programme to our Junior and Senior Youth Club on a Friday evening each week.
As well as getting involved in our programmes, those involved in the young leader process also have the opportunity to gain essential qualifications that will help them out in the near future. These qualification consist of OCN’s Level 1 in Leadership, to Level 2 and 3 in Youth Work Practice. We also offer the opportunity to get a Northern Ireland recognised certificate in volunteering.
