About Us

The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme is searching for inspirational young people across the Commonwealth who are making a difference in their communities.

Exceptional people aged 18-29 will receive awards for leading the way where they live, in honour of Her Majesty The Queen’s 60-year contribution to the Commonwealth. We’ll support them to do more life-changing work.

Grants will be made to organisations in selected Commonwealth countries that can show they are improving the lives of young people. The grants will help individuals gain new skills, employment and a voice in their communities.

Help us find and celebrate inspiring young leaders across the Commonwealth!
