Envision London

Description

A groundbreaking educational programme that inspires and enables young people to make a difference in their schools and local communities. Our programmes provide hands-on support for young people in schools and colleges on issues relating to citizenship education, sustainable development and the local community.

Envision was set up by four young people in 2000 to challenge the stereotype of ‘the youth’ as apathetic and disengaged with the issues going on around them. Today Envision’s flagship programme supports 16-19 year olds from over 130 schools and colleges in Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds and London. We also operate satellite schools in Cardiff, Essex, Oxford and Walsall. Last academic year we worked with over 4000 young people across the country across all of our programmes.

Envision programmes help young people to design their own local community projects tackling issues ranging from street crime to climate change. Our programmes seek to provide individuals with a powerful and rewarding experience of making a positive difference. Thereby inspired by their experience, these people will be both willing and able to continue acting as effective role models for their communities wherever they are building powerful legacies of their own.

We have a wealth of experience working with groups of young people to facilitate practical projects that have a positive impact on the young people, their schools and the wider community. We also provide Active Citizenship Workshops for higher education institutions and INSET days for teachers as well as working with businesses and community partners to support young people in building their employability skills and confidence.
