Youth Leadership & Life Skills

Young Global Leaders is a week long programme where young people will be given the opportunity to discover their own potential by taking part in various sessions focussing on communication, language and teamwork. This, coupled with an overnight Wilderness Experience where navigation and survival skills will be tested really makes YGL a fun and challenging programme.

The YGL Course is for 13-15 year olds and is offered as a 1 week programme part of an L&E World Camp.

There is a focus on leadership and teamwork as well as recognising vital life skills including:

  • Honesty and integrity
  • Positive attitude, motivation, ability to learn
  • Dependability and responsibility
  • Adaptability and flexibility
  • Ability to take constructive feedback
  • Hard work and ethics


These are the values we embrace which inform every aspect of the work that we do.

YGL is a place for students to investigate and interrogate the world around them, participating in a vibrant forum for debate and discussion that prioritizes empathy and understanding.

Our course is built on the philosophy that the ability to question our points of view and engage with those who think differently from us is a vital skill for the twenty-first century, helping us to better understand our own perspectives and develop our critical thinking skills, while encouraging a nuanced and empathetic approach to difficult discussions.

This philosophy underpins everything we do with YGL and plays a vital role in our morning programme.
