  • Youth and Community Leadership



Youth and Community Leadership explores national and global challenges that impact youth and other communities, and ways to create meaningful change through innovative leadership.

UC students have earned international reputation for their efforts in social activism and volunteering, and our campus is renowned for giving students the opportunity to engage in meaningful work in the community. The Youth and Community Leadership programmes offer real-world leadership opportunities and experience producing social action through UC’s networks and expertise.

Students will develop their professional leadership and entrepreneurial skills by examining a range of issues, social movements, and communities that motivate them in this highly inspirational area of study.
