THE NEED

We are determined to break the cycle of inequality in education.  

Too many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds do not achieve their full potential - at school and when transitioning to further education, training, or employment.

THE STUDENTS AT THIS SHOOL HAVE HIGH ASPIRATIONS.

BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY DON'T HAVE THE SAME OPPORTUNITIES THAT OTHER STUDENTS IN OTHER SCHOOLS HAVE.

WHY DO WE
EXIST?

In the UK today, the income of the family you are born into is still the strongest indicator of where you will end up. Young people from low-income backgrounds are less likely to do well at school, less likely to progress to higher education and less likely to enter secure and fulfilling employment. 

 

These inequalities are laid bare when a young person turns 16. The decisions they make at this critical juncture have consequences that last a lifetime. Too many are deprived of the guidance and networks they need to make informed decisions about their future.

OUR
SOLUTION

Our award-winning programme provides the guidance young people need at a critical point in their education. 

THIS PROGRAMME HAS REALLY OPENED MY SON’S EYES AND GIVEN 
HIM A NEW SENSE OF PURPOSE. WE’RE BOTH VERY HUMBLED THAT COMPLETE STRANGERS WOULD TAKE TIME OUT OF THEIR LIVES TO SUPPORT THIS INITIATIVE. I HOPE THEY KNOW HOW MUCH IMPACT THEY ARE HAVING ON THESE YOUNG PEOPLE’S LIVES. SO I THANK YOU AND THEM AND EVERYONE WHO IS INVOLVED.
