YOUNG Muslims in Leeds are invited to take part in a free course aimed at helping to make them ambassadors for the city. There are just a handful of places left for the Community Ambassadors course, which starts on Sunday, February 17. The six-week course includes modules on community cohesion, conflict resolution and leadership.
The end result will be a nationally recognisedNVQ2 or GCSE level certificate accredited by the Open CollegeNetwork. The first round of the course is being offered to Muslims aged 16-25,but it will eventually be opened up to people of all ages and backgrounds. Course creator Mohammed Kamran, who worked on the project for two years, said: “It’s a worthwhile opportunity for a young person to take. The course would normally cost in excess of £300 per learner but is being offered at no cost as our commitment to young people.”
Food and travel expenses will be provided and everyone completing the course will be given a £30 gift voucher.
