The Queen's Young Leaders Programme

Each year from 2014 to 2018, 60 inspirational young people are selected to receive an Award and become ‘Queen’s Young Leaders’ – one for every year that The Queen had served as Head of the Commonwealth at the time of her Diamond Jubilee. The aspiration is for at least one young person from every Commonwealth country to receive a Queen’s Young Leaders Award for achievement in transforming their own lives and the lives of others. 

The Queen's Young Leaders of 2017 have been announced. View a full list of the winners.
