Teens take control of their futures at Young Leaders Festival
Twelve lucky young people will be attending The Young Leaders Festival in Kent this summer, thanks to a competition run by Futureversity.
The twelve teens, who have all previously been on Futureversity courses, were selected to go to the festival for free by Futureversity, following dozens of applications for the coveted places.
The Young Leaders Festival 2014 is a charity-run event created and operated by the Knowledge to Action Foundation and takes place at the Hop Farm in Kent, between 4th and 8th August.
The festival will unleash the potential of 13 to 17 year-olds looking to build a more positive and confident future, by helping them embrace the idea of leadership. Combining world-class speakers with experiential team activity, the festival will confront failure head-on, help attendees overcome the obstacles life throws at them and develop skill sets that will lead to the creation of opportunity.
Guest speakers at the festival include the founder of Knowledge to Action Foundation Greg Sacker, the creator of freerunning Sebastien Foucan, and adventurer and entrepreneur Neil Laughton, who conquered Everest with Bear Grylls and flew a car across the Sahara desert. There will also be entertainment from up and coming stars The Turning and Will Mussett, plus an appearance and performance from The Voice winner Jermain Jackman!
Up to 2,000 young people will attend this year's Young Leaders Festival and places are available at the cost of £72 per person. For more information and to apply, visit www.ylf2014.com
