Sixteen Leeds teenagers have been speed dating: not to find romance, but to find out how to run the community.
The Leeds Leaders Group met representatives from 21 local organisations. And to make it engaging each teenager spoke to a community leader for 2.5 minutes. The event was held at the MAZZ Centre and organised by Zone chief executive Raina Sheaf. ‘’The evening gave future leaders much to think about,” she said.
Participant Joe Sheaf, 16, said: “I now know a lot more about how the community works.”
Leeds Leaders is funded by the Sparks Clore Development Fund.
