Challenge and Lead is a resource which young people can use to develop leadership skills and undertake challenges.
This five stage process has been developed by young people and youth workers and is based on the NYA’s principles and practice of Hear by Right.
Young people have been using the format to make a real difference go to the Global Optimists to read some of their stories.

Young people can also get national accreditation when they lead change and make a difference.
The Youth Leadership Team at the NYA has just piloted new National Open College Network (NOCN) units.
The units are at Level 1, 2 and 3 and are simple to use. You will need to register young people with a local centre and liaise with them to gain the accreditation.
Partner organisations have been meeting together to draw up a Leadership Framework. The framework draws up a common language to describe leadership opportunities. There are also accompanying activities which make up a toolkit to help young people to assess their leadership skills and contributions and for organisations to check out how young people are involved in leading within their work.
