Service and Leadership Award

The Liverpool Hope Service and Leadership Award is offered as an extra-curricular programme involving service-based experiences, development of leadership potential and equipping you for a career in a rapidly changing world. It is a direct enhancement to your degree, something which is
‌complimentary but different and which has a distinct ‘value added’ component. It is for those who particularly want to make a difference in this world, to be involved in the development of a moral and ethical society and to gain an understanding of social justice.

‌The award runs alongside your degree and gives recognition of service work you have performed. The award is structured carefully with leadership training, preparation for service work and reflection on your experiences as compulsory elements. The main part of the award is the service itself. You can undertake a wide variety of service projects, within the University, in the local community, serving Northwest region or national organisations and in some cases on our range of international ‘Global Hope’ projects.
