UpRising is 10!

August 22, 2017


Following a massively successful and rewarding 2017, we’re gearing to up to deliver 29 Programmes to over 900 participants over 2018. 

2018 is also our 10 year anniversary, and are in the midst of planning celebratory events and opportunities for young people to get back involved with UpRising. 


UpRising at 10

2018 marks the tenth anniversary of UpRising’s very first programmes in East London.

We are now operating leadership and employability programmes in several cities across the UK, with hundreds of young people benefiting from our programmes each year.

We are tremendously proud of everything that UpRising has achieved so far, and of the talent and drive of young people on our programmes, who go on to become leaders in fields such as law, business and social enterprise, politics and the media.

We couldn't have made any of this happen without support from individuals, funders and employers who believed in UpRising's approach and helped us by volunteering their time, venues to run sessions and, of course, funding.
