Through behind-the-scenes visits to public institutions such as the Houses of Parlaiment, New Scotland Yard, and the BBC, UpRisers learn first-hand how decisions are made. Leveraging UpRising’s network of supporters and institutional partners, UpRisers have the opportunity to meet and question those in power.
Through monthly learning sessions, UpRisers receive training from leading journalists, politicians and activists to sharpen skills including public speaking, management, and ethical leadership.
On monthly learning sessions: "Having so many great people from high profile organisations has been really good. Meeting them has given me the confidence to go up and talk to them. I wouldn't have dreamed of doing that before. Now I know they are just people. I can talk to them like anyone else."
