JLGB are committed to ensuring young people are empowered with transferable skills that will serve them for life. Anyone over the age of 14 is encouraged to join an accredited leadership development weekend to gain qualifications and enhance skills that will support them in life outside JLGB, in modules such as teamwork, communication, and planning.

The weekend includes a programme of exciting training sessions that have been designed to impart a mixture of theory and practical skills, so that participants can return to their local JLGB group and put their new skills into action. All of this is achieved while socialising with friends, old and new, from all over the UK, within a fun Jewish atmosphere.

Not only do these weekends provide practical experience to give participants the skills they need to thrive in every area of their life but also accredit them in Open College Network (OCN) modules so that their achievement is recognised nationally, making them more desirable candidates for universities and jobs.

Through OCN, JLGB accredits young people in a wide variety of high quality courses, encouraging them to become active leaders. While the most popular courses focus on teamwork and leadership, the courses range from organisation skills and awareness of inclusion and disability, to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and how to mentor. These courses are delivered in a positive and engaging environment outside of the classroom that enables young people to enjoy their learning by actively pursuing their individual interests.  

JLGB prides itself on the sheer calibre of our leaders and strive for nothing less than the highest standard of leadership so that every young person is given the support they need to grow into an active citizen. For this reason, we are dedicated to training and developing young people from a young age. Many of the members who grew up immersed in JLGB programmes in turn become inspirational leaders for the next generation.

There are two leadership development weekends coming up that will take our young leaders to the next level:

Weekend One: 27-29 January 2023

Weekend Two: 25-27 October 2023 (TBC)

JLGB feels this opportunity is so important for all its members that we subsidise these weekends by more than 50% meaning the price is just £60 including all training, food and accommodation.

If you are over the age of 14 don’t miss out, enquire about attending a weekend by calling 020 8989 8990 or emailing
