Leadership for Life is Ireland’s only evidence-based, accredited Youth Leadership programme for under 18 year olds. The programme empowers young people (15-18yrs) with the leadership capabilities to reach their full potential while allowing them to learn, practice and develop the core soft skills they will need in their future lives.
The programme is set out in a comprehensive manuals, design for use by teachers in Transition Year, Senior Cycle, Youthreach and CTC. Participants recieve workbooks to accompany each module (workbooks are now available in Irish). There are 3 modules included in the programme. Module 1 & 2 consist of 15hrs of facilitated learning and Module 3 is a self directed Community Action Project. On completion of the 3 Modules, participants can apply to receive a Foundation Certificate in Youth Leadership and Community Action from the University of Galway. Foróige provides facilitator training online over one and a half days. Teachers are trained in every aspect of the programme and will be confident in delivering the programme to a group of students.

We have been receiving excellent feedback on how much the students and teachers are engaging in Leadership for Life:
"This is a great programme and is a great way to teach the soft skills & personal development that young people often miss from academics. This is a brilliant, well thought out programme that I think more schools would use if they knew about it" Facilitator, St.Louis College, Mayo
