we create the opportunity and environment to help disadvantaged youth.

For over a decade

WE HAVE HELPED TURN AROUND SEVERAL THOUSAND LIVES

Quite simply, we create the opportunity and environment to help disadvantaged youth turn their lives around. We focus on early stage prevention programmes, identifying young people who have been failed by society, and other traditional support structures. Our youth are between the age of 16 and 26 with the majority at school age.

Those who come to us have been through a lot of the same struggles and insecurities; physical and emotional abuse, exclusion from society, inter generational disadvantage and poverty and bullying are just a few. But everyone is unique, and our youth come to us as individuals with their own specific needs.

Our programmes are tailored to our youth’s individual needs. We personalise our plans by emphasising one-on-one mentoring. Then, we call on our established network of partnerships in training, education, employment and enterprise to create opportunities that would not otherwise have been available. Our approach is different to our peer groups as we work in partnership with both small and large commercial organisations.

 

The advantages are that an organisation already has the functions across training, personal development, HR and Operations, and more importantly they have a future skills gap and the career opportunities that our youth need. Where we come in is to develop the framework required to introduce and support the development and mentoring of a diverse group of youth. We help develop internal mentor programmes using the skill base within organisations. All of our commercial partners believe our youth bring a great energy and passion to their organisations.

We have a comprehensive sector leading process that identifies and evaluates new youth. Once youth are selected they are assigned a personal mentor who will be standing by them for the full period of the programme. This mentor nurtures self-confidence, giving them close, personal attention, personal and professional development and encouragement every step of the way.

After introducing a student to their mentor, we create a plan designed to develop their unique potential. Our mentors help them identify a passion. Collaborating with all potential sources of support, such as their schools, faith groups, and local groups and agencies, we show them that they have the ability to create their own success if they are willing to put in the hard work, dedication and make that personal choice to turn their life around.

Our organisation now focuses on developing commercial / corporate partnerships allowing us to enable many more thousands of youth and be 100% sustainable for the future
