Know any budding young Greater Manchester leaders who want to learn from the experts and make real environmental change?
Or anyone unemployed, under-employed or working a zero-hour contract who needs a hand getting that dream job?

The UpRising Environmental Leadership Programme and Fastlaners Employability Programme are now open for applications.

Environmental Leadership Programme
The Environmental Leadership Programme gives young adults aged 19-25 the chance to learn directly from cross-sector, expert sustainability leaders as well as plan their own environmental project to make the world a better, brighter place to live in.

Participants are also matched with a personal coach and professional mentor; recent mentors have included senior leaders from the BBC, Manchester Climate Change Agency, Incredible Edible, Siemens, National Trust, Astrazeneca, and more.

UpRising’s most recent impact report (DEMOS) found that the programme significantly improved leadership, networking and advocacy skills; 68% of participants gained employment and one-in-five alumni set up a social enterprise or business.

Fastlaners Employability Programme
The Fastlaners Employability Programme builds the skills of participants aged 18-25 through interactive workshops, mock interviews and networking events with professionals, designed to help them identify career goals and develop the networks to secure fulfilling work.

Participants are matched with a peer mentor to motivate them in their job search and have access to three to six months of ongoing, one-to-one support from UpRising staff to apply for opportunities and prepare for interviews.

89% of last years participants found a meaningful opportunity within 6 months.
