Our Life Skills program is delivered through LYR’s Active Row which reaches over 5,000 young people from London, Leeds, and Nottingham.  Our measure of success is for our young people to be engaged in activity and develop life skills transferable to all aspects of life.  


Each one of our sessions strives to incorporate and educate young people on one of the five life skills: aiming high, staying positive, teamwork, problem solving and leadership. A key aspect of this program is linking our motivated students with corporate companies who can inspire them to seek successful careers by transferring these life skills into the workplace. If you want to get involved in what we are building, contact Rebecca Harrisson.
