Leaving no one behind
Every young person deserves the chance to have a bright future. Students’ outcomes should not be determined, or restricted, by their background. Education can only go so far in levelling the playing field for disadvantaged young people.
We want the young people we support to have the opportunity to discover their skills and the things they’re passionate about – and learn how they can take them forward into the world of work. We provide activities and experiences that will help uncover these skills and develop new ones, to gain confidence and be inspired. These activities fit into our four key programme areas:
· Exploring through enterprise and entrepreneurship
· Developing skills through sport
· Exploring creativity through arts
· Building confidence through adventure.
We are currently building a new programme of activities that will ensure we offer a safe environment, within current government guidelines, to help inspire, skill and mobilise the young people we support.
