ThinkForward Head of Delivery selected to take part in new youth leader programme

We’re delighted to announce that our very own Head of Delivery Sally Marsh, has been announced as one of 22 people selected to take part in the new Clore Programme for youth sector leaders.

Working in partnership with a group of youth sector charities, Clore Social Leadership has announced their new leadership development programme to find the next generation of youth sector leaders. Twenty-two emerging leaders from 22 youth charities have been revealed as the participants of the inaugural Clore6: Youth Sector Leadership Programme including ThinkForward Head of Delivery, Sally Marsh.

The six-month programme was developed for, and in collaboration with, youth charities who together identified the need to cultivate a leadership talent pipeline for their sector. Utilising their experience of developing social leaders, Clore Social Leadership provide participants with the necessary skills to become resilient and adaptive leaders.

‘Strong leadership is pivotal to navigate through organisational and sector challenges,’ said Shaks Ghosh, Chief Executive of Clore Social Leadership in The Guardian. ‘The CEOs from these youth organisations recognise this which is why they approached us.
