Each year, from 2014 to 2018, 60 inspirational young people were selected to receive an Award and become ‘Queen’s Young Leaders’ – one for every year that The Queen had served as Head of the Commonwealth at the time of her Diamond Jubilee. The aspiration was for at least one young person from every Commonwealth country to receive a Queen’s Young Leaders Award for achievement in transforming their own lives and the lives of others.  

Once The Queen’s Young Leaders’ Programme had been designed and implemented, our role was to curate aspects of the programme’s legacy, primarily via an Associate Fellows’ Programme. 

This legacy programme aims to create a space in which these amazing individuals can continue to operate in the Commonwealth space, network, promote their work and develop their own skills.
