Voyage was graced by the young, bright and visionary Vickram Grewal from Hounslow in West London. Vickram was invited to present a key note to open our Young Leaders for Safer Cities (YLFSC) programme on the 26th September 2015. Vickram opened by discussing his views on race, leadership and power and related his rich and diverse experiences as a youth leader in a London school, the Fabian Society and now his position as Councillor in Hounslow. Vickram spoke passionatly about his influences, memorable moments and the importance of drawing on peer groups for support and guidance but also knowing when to step out alone.

Thanks for your kind support Vickram. Lets continue to stay in touch. @VGrewal7

It gives me great pleasure to confirm Temi Mwale’s participation in Voyage YLFSC programme 2015. I am truly honoured to accept Temi participation given Temi’s personal story which led to forming and leading a charity called “Get out of the Gang” based in Barnet north London. Temi will share her vision and story as part of Voyages taught session on Violent crime on the 10th October. Temi is also the Deputy Chairman for the Barnet Safer Neighbourhood Board and the Chair of the Barnet Independent Stop and Search Monitoring Group as well as a core member of the Justice For Mark Duggan Campaign.

Voyage welcomes its new cohort of young leaders from over 6 inner London boroughs. 100 year 9 students signed up to participate in Voyage Young Leaders for Safer Cities (YLFSC). To date students have participated  in a 2 day induction programme, a university visit and a fun filled residential weekend. Young leaders are now gearing up for their taught sessions starting on 26th September 2015. To support and enhance our programme Voyage has successfully engaged external organisations to help animate some of its taught subjects. Voyage looks forward to empowering young people with more knowledge from those in the know.
