Young Leaders for Safer Cities 2019

We are pleased to announce the launch of our Young Leaders for Safer Cities programme for 2019.

We are now reaching out to schools and community organisations that may wish to refer young people age 14 – 15 years to our YLFSC Course, starting in April 2019. We aim to recruit young people through school assemblies and community presentations. Our programme is ran From Hackney Community College here so if your young people are within reasonable travelable distance to our location here in Hackney Community College, just sign up on the link below.

The programme starts with a 3 day induction programme on 8th April- 10th April 2019 here at the college in the Easter Holiday and culminates in young people taking part in amazing leadership residential weekend at Kingswood. This is designed to give young people a great understanding of the programme, get to know our tutors and bond with their peers before lessons start in earnest on 27th April 2019. Young people are expected to participate in structured lessons 9am two Saturdays per month exploring Leadership, power & race, Political Literacy, Violent crime, Stop and Search, Understanding the Media, Problem Solving and presentation skills.

We have a dedicated period for young people to take part in social action projects with our employment and charitable partners where young people gain  vocational skills and begin to explore careers and employment pathways before presenting their solutions to their peers. The programme ends with an amazing  Graduation ceremony on the19th July 2019. Everyone including teachers and parents are welcome to attend.

We look forward to hearing from you.

On the 24th of November 2018 VOYAGE would like to invite your child to come with us on a trip to the 2018 Skills London Conference. Skills London is the UK’s biggest jobs and careers event for 14-24 year olds

We will be meeting at Hackney Community College for 11:30am, and the Conference will be taking place at the Excel London and will be travelling there via train. Following the conference Young People will be escorted back to the college where they will be dismissed. We hope to be back by 4:30pm.

The conference will be a chance for your child to:

  • Visit the different stands, talk to the exhibitors and try the activities
  • Find out what the various companies do, how they recruit staff and what they can offer
  • Think about what suits them, not what their friends are doing
  • Explore lots of different options, rather than just their ideal choice

If you would be interested in your child attending this event please fill in the below form which will act as the consent form.
