We are excited to announce that the first ever UK Youth Inspiring Hope Awards, sponsored by UPS, will take place on Wednesday 3 March 2021! The Awards will celebrate the inspirational achievements and contributions of young people, and the organisations and projects who work tirelessly to ensure young people across the UK are equipped to thrive.
We want to bring together as many people as possible for a fun, interactive and inspiring evening! There will be activities to take part in with your peers, the opportunity to hear from inspirational speakers and some live entertainment. If you or your group wants to take part tickets will be available in January 2021.
Young people are at the heart of this event – this is an evening led by young people for young people. If you are a young person who is interested in hosting or performing at the awards, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us how and why you want to get involved!
