U&K Summer School
Here’s what they said…
The experience was truly amazing and beneficial to enhancing leadership and people skills
This really helped me to progress as a leader and it allowed me to consider that I have a great opportunity to make a positive influence by leading in any future career.
The content was fantastic especially for the incredible way it worked and helped so many young (and older) people involved.
All the mentors were fantastic bringing a variety of gifts to the group
The speakers were amazing and the content was brilliant and I would love to be that influential when I am older.
It was wonderful and led with so much love and gentleness, which I think took quite a few of the people a while to get used to being treated with such high regard.
It was truly amazing - it gave us everything you have and more.
It has given me incredible friends I will keep for life.
