LEAP ( Leadership Experience Awareness Potential) Programme

Embercombe’s transformative residential schools programme for young people aged 14-18. The LEAP programme aims to inspire and empower young people, connecting them to a world where they feel able to make positive change and supporting them to develop as future change makers, entrepreneurs and leaders.

The aims to provide individuals with:

  • A greater sense of individual and collective responsibility
  • New practical skills
  • Improved communication skills
  • An improved understanding of their individual gifts
  • A more positive relationship to work
  • Skills in self leadership
  • A stronger sense of community
  • A deeper understanding of sustainability and the natural world

Young people will be asked to join in, to have a go and take their turn. Throughout the week they will be challenged to to be seen, to take risks, to make choices, to speak out, to take responsibility and to care.

Our programme offers a chance for young people to explore who they are and begin to consider the adult they would like to be.
