The Archbishop of York Youth Trust today has offered its Nelson Mandela lesson resource pack free to all schools as featured in the Young Leaders Award.  This pack is available to download from

The Young Leaders Award is an innovative educational resource which encourages young people to engage with their local communities, serve others and make a difference. As a part of the Key Stage 3 resources, the students study the life of Nelson Mandela exploring how his faith and leadership have led him to change our world for the better.

Dan Finn, Director of the Archbishop of York Youth Trust said: “We currently have over 15,000 young people involved in our Young Leaders Awards and I know that the students have been inspired by Nelson Mandela’s leadership as they have studied his life. As a result we’ve seen huge numbers of social action projects take place across the north of England as the students have been empowered to “be the change they want to see”. In the words of Mandela himself; “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”, and through our Awards we are seeing young people, schools and communities changed for the better”.
