Flying Futures: Camps

Flying Futures and Active Leaders partnership

Flying Futures CIC are delighted to announce a partnership with Active Leaders. The  partnership will see Flying Futures exclusively deliver the Active Leaders programme across the  Yorkshire region over the next year. The addition of the Active Leaders programme to delivery  enables Flying Futures to engage with yet more young people across the region.

Active Leaders is a programme designed for young people to develop their confidence,  employability and leadership skills. Trainees learn to plan and lead fun, physical activity sessions and run events with younger children – challenges that prove repeatedly to bring out  the very best in them. A bridge to future pathways, we aim to help participants find follow-on  work experience, community volunteering and holiday employment opportunities.  Mark Hippey, Chief Operating Officer at Flying Futures is excited about the opportunities this  will bring:

“We’re excited to be delivering the Active Leaders programme across Yorkshire providing even more opportunities to young people across the region, particularly in  these testing times. The Active Leaders programme provides a terrific platform for young people to develop skills, explore employment opportunities and gain incredible  experience through leadership. We can’t wait to get started delivering to young people  across the region and working closely with the team at Active Leaders to provide these  opportunities.”

Penny Snowden, the Chief Executive Officer at Active Leaders is delighted with the  partnership:

“We are delighted to be working with a highly respected company in Flying Futures, who we know will continue our ethos and help provide training and pathways for young  people. We are proud that Flying Futures have chosen Active Leaders to be the start  point for their leadership pathway programme and we can’t wait to explore new  initiatives throughout the region together”.

Fully funded Active Leaders programmes are available across Yorkshire with Flying Futures to schools, youth organisations and clubs. For more information, please contact activeleaders@flyingfutures.org
