Foundational Leadership Programme – For Young Adults – Starting April 2 – Sign Up Now!

We need a new generation of Young Adult Leaders to continue the mission of Jesus Christ.

Are you… … prepared to get “off your couch” and make a difference with your life? …

Be a leader. …Be the difference in your world.  

The Foundational Leadership Programme offers participants a unique opportunity to explore and develop Gospel centered transformational leadership Skills.   These skills can be readily applied to the participants own context.

As Parishes Emerge from Covid-19 restrictions, we really need to invite Young Adults to help begin again the ministry with young people. Hopefully this might lead to a group from your parish for World Youth Day in Lisbon 2023. 

When does it start? This next course will commence in 2 April 2022

Who can take part?

Most of our graduates from Foundational Leadership Programme have come from a variety of experiences. Some are part of parish groups and sponsored by their parish, others are teachers or young professionals who wish to add to their experience of faith and leadership. Almost all of our graduates have taken their experience of the course and applied it to their lives.


If you would like to take up this challenge, get in touch. If your parish is looking to do some long term planning and work with young people, ideally this course is tailored to suit young people who will be given extra responsibility in their local Church. This course will also prepare leaders for World Youth Day Lisbon 2023.
