Watermills Leadership Academy

This spring the Together We Create team have been working with young people from Watermill Lane in Enfield to co-produce one of the best projects we have run in years!

The Leadership Academy is a four part programme that encourages and nurtures young people to develop skills so they can improve their community.

We worked with the young people to decide on the focus for each session. From ‘confidence’ on a zip wire to ‘caring’ at the farm, these young residents created a program which best fitted their needs and creativity.

This pilot phase of the Leadership Academy was funded by BBC Children in Need, supported by Origin Housing. We hope to deliver more sessions in late 2017
