How does Concordia select their leaders for the projects? Our leaders are selected mostly among our pool of experienced leaders of UK international projects who’ve been supporting our organisation for several years. We also recruit volunteers who have a proven track record of successfully leading residential projects for young people, preferably overseas. We organise a training/selection weekend for all our leaders where we assess their skills and potential and make sure that they are the best leaders for each group. Each group leader will be subject to a DBS check.
