Training will be delivered on-line but also includes the opportunity to come together for an all-Island youth led conference in February 2022, where young, aspiring leaders (aged 16-27) will have the opportunity to continue to develop your leadership skills, learn from business and political leaders, while connecting with other young people from across the island of Ireland.  Once your accredited training is completed participants will also have the opportunity to work collaboratively with others on social action projects which will be showcased at a Future Leaders Showcase event in May 2022.
