The purpose of the project is to establish a Community Leadership Academy for 18-26 year olds working in partnership with various agencies in Ceredigion. The Leadership Academy will target young people from across Ceredigion, who come from various language backgrounds, whether fluent welsh speakers, learners or young people who consider their Welsh to be ‘shaky’ or who are lacking in confidence in its use.

The project will:

• increase local ability (capacity) to ensure local Welsh neighbourhoods and sustainable bilingual communities in Ceredigion
• enable young adults aged 18-26 to build leadership skills in the community and their neighbourhood
• increase the confidence of individuals who are natural Welsh speakers to take positive action in their community
• increase the confidence of individuals who are not naturally Welsh speakers to take positive action in their community demonstrating more Welsh and bilingualism

Project activities include:

• an annual intensive development course for 8 -12 people
• casual learning opportunities open to any eligible interested individuals

The Academy’s curriculum will likely include:

• defining communities and neighbourhoods
• equality and equal opportunities
• bilingualism and language awareness
• skills and leadership styles
• planning skills
• facilitation skills
• presentation and conducting group work
• consultation and identifying needs
• committee skills
• working with young people
• local policy and public administration
