The High Life Highland Leadership Programme is open to all young people across the Highlands aged between 12-25 years. This unique programme uses leadership as a tool in which to engage with all young people, facilitating opportunity and progression through recognised and accredited awards that require a substantial commitment to volunteering. Moreover the programme provides opportunities for young people to gain accredited learning, develop new skills for life, increase confidence and self-esteem ensuring no young person in Highland is held back because of their socio-economic background. Being involved in the HLH programme equips our young people with the necessary experiences, qualifications and employability skills required to build a successful career or improve opportunities for further education. For many the Leadership Programme provides an alternative curriculum enhancing what is achieved in mainstream education.
The Leadership Programme offers a selection of awards from HLH using the familiar and quality courses from Sports Leaders UK , Scottish Governing Bodies for sport and Youth Work. Once you commit to one of the Award Levels (see webpage) you will become a member of the Leadership Programme. We pride ourselves on the quality of Young Leaders that are produced through the programme and are confident the Leadership Programme will develop your experiences of leadership in both your school and community, giving you valuable skills and experiences for your future education and employment.
