Young Leaders Scheme



We are delighted to share with you that the Young Leaders Scheme is running in the Northampton Methodist District. As a District, we believe that it is really important to provide opportunities for young people and young adults to grow in confidence, develop their leadership skills, and deepen in faith. This also provides the opportunity to serve the needs of Churches and Communities.

The Young Leaders Scheme enables young people and young adults to be employed for 3 hours a week for one year (negotiable) by their Methodist Church or Circuit. We are currently arranging placements to begin in September 2020 and finish in August 2021. If you are uncertain about these time frames, please be assured that they are only guidelines.

You might be here as a young person or young adult with interest in being on the Young Leaders Scheme. If you are, the leaflet below will provide you with some more information.

We have an ‘Expression of Interest Pack’ which shares essential key information about the Young Leaders Scheme. We encourage you to have a look at the pack and register your interest using the ‘Expression of Interest Form’ within.

If your Church or Circuit are at the point where they would like to commit to hosting a young leader for September 2020, you will need to complete the ‘Registration Pack’. It is essential that you have a conversation with Ollie McAllister, Young Leader Scheme Coordinator, before completing this pack.
