The conferences are a great opportunity to celebrate all that our young people can achieve and to hear from key speakers, who will help those attending to consider some of the latest information around Character Education and the effect of social action and volunteering on young people’s lives and the lives of their local communities. Hearing from teachers and pupils who have experienced the Awards for themselves is always encouraging but also demonstrates how the Awards are delivered in particular settings.
I commend the Awards to school leaders because of the difference this makes to empower young people to make long-lasting changes.Archbishop John Sentamu
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu was the keynote speaker at the February 2017 conference held at Bishopthorpe Palace. He spoke about the success of the Young Leaders Award so far and how important it is to raise well rounded young people who have vital roles to play in our society.
Other Keynote Speakers in 2017 included Bishop Libby Lane at Runcorn, Bishop Philip North at Preston and Bishop Paul Bayes at Liverpool.
