This October Greg Secker, entrepreneur and founder of charity initiative The Knowledge to Action Foundation, is set to launch his first development programme for teenagers.
The Youth Leadership Summit is a five day residential course in Grosvenor Hall, Kent, aimed at teaching 14 – 17 year olds the practical strategies which will help them to achieve future business success.
Throughout the week, the teenagers will be mentored by various industry experts, focussing on personal development techniques across the areas of health, relationships, wealth, leadership, emotional management and accelerated learning. The program will be led by industry guru Harry Singha, who has over 20 years’ experience of working with young people.
Alongside the seminars and coaching, there will also be fun team building activities such as climbing and a triple zip wire.
Award winning trader and international speaker, Greg Secker, will be at the Summit teaching young people the importance of a healthy relationship with money, looking at how to maintain a positive approach to wealth, and exploring the idea that many peoples’ approaches towards money are the result of their childhood experiences.
Secker says, “The Knowledge to Action Foundation has raised significant sums of money for charities such as Barnardo’s and The Ubuntu Education Fund, which is brilliant, but we want to be a hands-on initiative as well”.
“We are in the fantastic position of being able to enhance the lives of children, giving them opportunities and learning tools that they wouldn’t otherwise have access to until much later in life, if at all”.
Teenagers from as far as Australia will be attending the event, and thanks to donations made through the Knowledge to Action Foundation, disadvantaged children from across the UK will also be able to experience the programme.
Andy Argent who manages homes for 16-18 year olds who are coming out of care, is sending six girls to the Youth Leadership Summit.
“When children have grown up in care all their lives, they often only get the chance to mix with others in similar situations to them. They run the risk of believing that a good job and a good income is beyond their grasp. The Summit is a great opportunity for them to mix with people from different social standings and broaden their horizons. They’ll get taught by influential, successful leaders that anything is possible for their own futures if they just set their minds to it. I think it’s brilliant”.
The Youth Leadership Summit will take place at Grosvenor Hall, Kent from 3rd – 8th October.
