How can you have a say on the things that are decided for you?


The Programme


UpRising are on the hunt for future heros to shake things up. We will be running programmes in the West Midlands and Cardiff this year.


Find Your Voice will show you how to overcome the fear and let the world know what you care about.

Watch our one minute video to find out what past participants have said about Find Your Voice. 
You will:
  • Launch a digital campaign and make a film on issues you care about
  • Tell the big decision makers in your city what you really think
  • Explore your values and challenge yourself to learn new skills 


Most importantly, it's ENTIRELY free to take part

Check out some of the films that have been created by young people here: For The Youth and Mental Health.


“We looked a lot at ourselves [on the Programme]. This helped with my recent job app; I could express who I am and what I believe in. I got the role because of UpRising!”  UpRiser
