Levelling the playing field for young leaders from diverse walks of life

Making LEMONADE is our flagship leadership programme for 18-25 year olds who have experienced a sour lemon (or two) in life.

We delivered a very successful pilot in 2017 and have been busy collaborating with our Alumni and partners to make a bigger (and badder) version for 2020.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed towards our journey, this wouldn’t be possible without you!
