Young leaders have been recognised at an awards ceremony run by Jewish Care. 

The MIKE Awards celebrated the work of more than 90 young people connected with Jewish Care’s MIKE youth leadership programme. 

The programme – the name of which stands for motivation, inspiration, knowledge and education – aims to empower young people to become leaders through online training.

Participants also help to run after-school clubs for primary-aged pupils at Clore Tikva School.
