It gives us great pleasure to announce Voyage has been commissioned by the Black Police Association (BPA) to investigate a promise Black Police Officers could make to the community. This question was presented to our young leaders who then chose to respond to this question by designing a questionnaire and focus group to survey the view of under 18 year olds across London.

The research project has been designed, lead and the results of the research will be presented to the Black Police Associations Annual General Meeting on Monday the 29th October 2018.

Please help us by contributing to our research and share with young people under 18 years. Click on the link which will take you to the survey page.

It give us great pleasure at Voyage to showcase an amazing film produced by Leee John  the lead Singer of Imagination (band from the 80s) and his team whilst hosting our Graduation event in July this year. Leee and his team kindly donated the film as part of his broader plans to adopt Voyage as his charity in support of his new album Retropia. We thought to share this with you first.

Its a great film and really presents some useful information about Voyage and why our programme and impact is so unique.

Enjoy

Voyage is embarking on wider and deeper plan of volunteering, work experience and social action engagement in our bid to create a seamless but rising 4 year programme for our students joining our leadership schemes in Hackney east London.

Operating annually Voyage already runs two structured programmes for its students Young Leaders for Safer Cities and its graduate programme South Hackney Leadership Academy. Our programmes operate at evenings, weekends and at holiday periods, providing unique opportunities to embed a wide range of specialist delivery partners who can provide additional qualifications, motivational talks and visits to places of interest. These act as way of strengthening our work with young people whilst provide access to our partners struggling to engage diverse and hard to reach young people.

To this end we are seeking new partners who can offer a mix of bite sized and regular volunteering, campaigning and social action opportunities throughout the year encouraging our students to

  • Access higher education
  • pursue careers at a raised level
  • more employable and competitive

Voyage is confident it can supply and give access to a diverse range of competent, trained and professionalised young people (aged 15 – 17 years both individuals and groups) to charitable organisations, companies and event organisers/ producers that require a youthful work force to help expand their businesses and deliver their objectives.

If you have any opportunities you wish to discuss feel free to contact Voyage on 0207 613 8343 or by emailing us at admin@voyageyouth.com.
