Youth Empowerment

We believe that young people are the key to improving our communities, so we are committed to providing them with all the help and support they need.

Our Youth Empowerment programme provides long-term, intensive support for marginalised 16 to 21 year olds, helping our young people overcome barriers and teaching them the resilience and life skills needed to succeed.

Poverty has a terrible impact on young people. It restricts their freedom, education and aspirations. But what’s worse is they are forced to endure this in silence, as all too often young people are excluded from conversations about how to tackle their problems. Their opinions go unheard. Their hopes for the future fade. By creating pathways to education and employment while showing them how to achieve their potential, we empower young people to fight for a better future for themselves.

Our mission is to place young people right at the heart of the decisions that affect their lives, to become community leaders, and make a positive difference in their community.
