Participants talk - ILP St Briavels 2011

We are excited to announce the release of some very inspiring interviews taken during the International Leadership Programme which took place in St Briavels Castle from the 18th to the 29th of September 2011 and was funded by the EU programme Youth in Action.

The programme, titled "Taking vision to action - Inspiring leadership in the volunteering youth field", was a 10 day training programme designed to engage and inspire emerging young leaders, volunteers, educators and youth workers. Focal points were the exploration ofpotential, getting in touch with vision and converting these into positive action for the benefit of society.
