Voyage is proud to announce its support for a dynamic programme called The Ubuntu Police-Youth Roundtable. This is an innovative new project developed in partnership by the Tutu Foundation and Youth Futures and funded by the Mayors Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and the Sir John Cass Foundation. Their mission is to improve relations between the police and young people through the philosophy of Ubuntu.

The project is seeking 50 young people from 10 inner London boroughs to act as ambassadors who will be trained to lead and facilitate their own round tables in their communities. The programme launch will be an inspirational event 18th March 2017 at Hackney Community College designed for young people to get to know more, become part of a new team of Ubuntu Ambassadors and understand projects requirements, including renumeration and long term benefits.

This will be an opportunity for you to,

  • Interact with other Ambassadors from the 10 participating London Boroughs,
  • Participate in facilitated exercises
  • Meet with and listen to inspirational leaders

At the launch event, you will receive a comprehensive information pack which has been designed to empower you and enhance your role as an Ambassador and help you to inspire your peers to participate in the Round Tables.

Voyage is proud to announce its new partnership with Business In The Community (BITC) who have agreed to run a series of fun mystery shopper events for our young people. These online mystery shopper events are designed to give young people the opportunity to feed back to employers about their websites and job adverts. The key mission is to discover if employers are producing attractive and accessible websites to encourage young peoples as potential employers and to produce recommendations about what would make their websites better.  Hannah Chui and her BITC team will be joining us at the next SHLA on the 25th March at 2pm to explain the programme in more detail.

The South Hackney Leadership Academy hosted the amazing Street Doctors Stepwise programme over two days in Hackney. Young people learnt about how they can help someone who is bleeding, how to assist if someone is concussed and in shock. The workshops focused on real life case studies and young people found it shocking to hear other young people would rather take phones out and record an incident rather than use it to call for help.

Young people were also introduced to young trainee doctors who shared their personal journeys about going into the profession and what it takes to sustain themselves whilst studying. Young people gained so much from the programme some are much clearer about their educational pathways and one is defiantly going to become a future doctor.

In total 12 young people complete their 1st Aid at work Certificates. Much love, thanks and praises go out to Jo Broadwood and her fantastic team of committed and highly trained Doctors. Special thanks to Ray Douglas Gangology

Here are some young people participating.IMG_3036 IMG_2999 IMG_3002 IMG_3021
