Youth UPF encourages, sponsors and organises many types of events as well as focussing on leadership training for global citizenship.
It’s that time of the year again-to celebrate, to recognise, to share. On 5th July, UPF hosted its annual “Young Achievers Award” in Portcullis House, celebrating future leaders. Some diverse stories of contributions young people have made to their local and national communities were shared in the Boothroyd room, and I can say first-hand that it was an extremely inspiring event.

The Young Achievers Award 2017: Celebrating Future Leaders ceremony was an outstanding occasion to hear a wide range of inspiring testimonies from young adults from overcoming being a refugee to caring for disabled or homeless. Hosted by Rt Hon Tom Brake MP, a number of parliamentarians warmly congratulated their constituents while presenting their awards.
The Youth Achievement Awardees testimonies were again so inspiring and refreshing that those who may have wanted to leave could not pull themselves away. Held in Committee Room 10 of the House of Commons on July 8th, the award programme was hosted by Mr Virendra Sharma MP's office and kindly supported throughout by Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham.
With partners Shout Out UK and Road Works Media, Youth UPF participated in a workshop to promote political literacy among young adults and teenagers during Parliament Week. Both Shout Out UK and Universal Peace Federation (UPF) - UK are partners of Parliament Week. Matteo Bergamini, founder of Shout Out UK, in photo launching the event.
