UpRising is a part time leadership programme designed to open pathways to civic society and create future leaders in political and public life. It recruits talented young people from diverse backgrounds and equips them with the skills, experience and confidence to become the leaders of tomorrow and create positive change in their communities.
The UpRising leadership programme was launched by the Young Foundation in East London in 2008. UpRising has been working locally ever since, supporting 19-25 year olds from Barking & Dagenham, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Hackney.
Since our launch, UpRising has worked with 260 young adults from the local boroughs who have in turn delivered over 50 Social Action Campaigns in the area.
