Are you aged between 14 and 18 and ready to embark on an exciting journey of self-discovery and leadership development? Look no further than the Young Leaders Program at Carlisle Youth Zone!

At Carlisle Youth Zone, we believe in empowering young people to become confident, resilient leaders in their communities. Our Young Leaders Program offers a dynamic platform for teenagers to hone their leadership skills, boost their confidence, and make a positive impact on the world around them.

Young leaders help support our team during Junior Club sessions and Holiday Club.
