Discover what it is like to become a Young Pioneer and find out about the selection process.

Risks and challenges

As with any course, we can never guarantee that our Young Pioneers will master the mindsets and skillsets they need. However, we have created an application process that ensures we select the most promising young people with the potential for success. More importantly, each Young Pioneer will receive personal mentoring from experts throughout the course. If any of our young people struggle at any point, we are committed to offering them more mentoring hours to support them.

We will not be able to offer this course to our promising Young Pioneers for free if we do not reach the target of £11,000. We will put a lot of effort into our (50) Days of Summer to make sure that we are accessible to anyone who needs to know more about our Ākāśa Young Pioneers Programme before backing our campaign.
