join our Young Leaders Programme

As part of Figures of Speech we're looking for young people aged 16 – 25 with big ideas, something vital to say about the world we live in and the desire to influence positive change.

If that’s you come and take part in our exciting leadership and speech writing programme.

As part of the programme you will work with a professional writer and a director who will support you in generating ideas, structuring a speech and developing your skills in public speaking. At the end the end of this development period you will have the opportunity to record your speech with a professional film crew for online broadcast.

You don’t need any previous experience in speech writing or public speaking, you just need to have an innovative idea you want to share or have a desire to challenge and inspire people to think differently about an issue that is important to you.

There are lots of ways to get involved, we have programmes coming up in July and September.

Interested? Please follow the link to complete a short application form which you can find here.
