The black history month programme has been set up to promote Voyages Leadership Academy which takes place at weekends and evenings.

Our leadership academy is already running lead by an empowering progression programme providing unique opportunities for young people (15 – 17 years). It’s our mission to assist the learning of new skills, gain qualifications and participate in meaningful work experience/paid roles and access leadership weekend residentials and trips to European Countries with our exchange partners.

Leadership is a fundamental part of our work and messaging. Every year, we will recognise the achievements of a select few who demonstrate amazing personal growth and capacity to support their peers and their communities. Individuals will have opportunities to gain the nationally recognised Jack Petchey Award and the Voyage Leadership Scholarship, whereby one exceptional young person will receive a £500 donation to their future academic costs and expenses.

The Leadership Academy will be supported by new corporate partnerships with Legal, medical, financial and public/ private sector institutions who will offer professional mentoring to students will to commit additional time to their progression needs. The Leadership Academy will have three programme strands which are

Staying Safe: learning essential skills and information ensuring young people can remain safe and be agents for change in their community

Youth Voice: Providing young people with real opportunities to make substantive change in their community

Creative arts / Sport: Providing opportunities for individuals to learn keys in a number of disciplines and Arts Awards qualifications.

Our sessions will involve an amazing array of guests from industries of interest and our sessions will be presented with wit, humor and fun and at all times involve a chance to reflect and discuss what you have gained. Exemplary young people will be selected for mentoring, paid work experience and a chance to visit our partners in EU countries.

Join us on 25th September to hear more at 6pm at the Hackney Community College,

The actual programme starts in November and our sessions take place on Wednesday evenings from 4.30 – 7pm and Saturdays from 12 – 4pm).
