Community and Not-for-profit organisations
The Manchester Leadership Programme (MLP) is one example of The University of Manchester's commitment to making a positive contribution to the wider community.
MLP students learn how to become the socially responsible leaders of tomorrow, through a combination of hands-on, practical volunteering experience and taught lectures.
The MLP is made up of 2 elements:
- An academic unit delivered by prominent University academics and high profile external speakers.
- Volunteering work, carried out over an academic year.
- Strengthen your team and expand your resources
- Undertake a specific project which you would otherwise not have the resources to do
- Inject new skills, perspectives and expertise into your organisation
- Raise your profile at The University of Manchester
To successfully complete the MLP and gain the Manchester Leadership Award, students must complete a certain number of hours of approved volunteering. The hours can be completed either within a single or several organisations.
Volunteering must be unpaid, excluding travel expenses, and there is no cost to community and not-for-profit organisations to take part.
