Are you between the ages of 18 and 29? Do you take the lead in transforming lives within your community? If you answered in the affirmative to both these questions, then consider applying for the Queen’s Young Leader Award. Read on.
The Queen’s Young Leader Award recognises and celebrates exceptional people aged 18-29 from across the Commonwealth, who are taking the lead in their communities and using their skills to transform lives. Winners of this prestigious Award will receive a unique package of training, mentoring and networking, including a one-week residential programme in the UK during which they will collect their Award from Her Majesty The Queen. With this support, Award winners will be expected to continue and develop the amazing work they are already doing in their communities.
Applications to become a 2016 Queen’s Young Leader are open from 22nd June – 7th September 2015. Last year 3 Canadians were chosen and 4 received honorable mention.
