Urban Uprising improves the life chances of disadvantaged young people using rock climbing. Our programmes deliver physical, social and personal development, and gives the young people access to highly trained positive role models through our coaches.

We give young people who wouldn’t normally have the chance an opportunity to experience the transformational personal change that rock climbing can bring.

We work in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Cambridge and Bristol, and partner with local youth organisations to reach young people experiencing disadvantage, often from deprived communities. We also partner with climbing centres who provide instructors and entry at a reduced cost.

As Programme Coordinator, you will work alongside the Programme Manager in developing the charity and managing the delivery of quality climbing programmes for young people. This will be done in partnership with local youth charities and schools, climbing centres and volunteers. You will be skilled in project management and partnership working, have great communication skills and be motivated to help young people reach their full potential.
