Voyage is proud to announce our amazing collaboration with New City College to run our two week long Horizons Plus Project.

Horizons is accessed by a short sign up form attached below and is available by referrals from secondary school teachers, social and community workers. Young people can self refer also.

Horizons is a unique collaboration which combines our specialisms supporting young people with educational challenges alongside structured education provision. This collaboration allows us to work with young people who may not feel that higher education may not be their next step in life and we aim to work with them to prepare and help plan their steps into employment and possible training.

Young people will

  • access bite size learning of key subjects offered at New City College
  • secure a mentor as part of their ongoing involvement in college life
  • get to meet some amazing young people on similar journeys
  • leave our project with a clearer sense of their choices and life goals
  • enjoy refreshments and lunch

We hope to encourage young people to review their options by sampling our bite size course which are all part of the two week programme starting on Monday 19th July and finishes Thursday 29th July. All participants will be invited to Voyages annual BBQ 31st July so all participants can become part of our wider family and access on going support.

We are really excited to announce our special Impact Day hosted by our amazing new partner Seen Displays. Seen displays are loaning us their space, expertise and are using this opportunity to introduce young people into their creative world.

Our Impact Days are designed to extract the impact of our work with young people and to generate amazing visuals, film and talking heads giving testimony to young peoples growth, development and purpose over the last 3 years.

We at Voyage chose to do things differently and to do this we have appointed our creative specialist team the Shoal Collective. The Shoal Collective have devised a creative brief, helping us to tell amazing stories about the leadership journeys of our young peoples experiences with us.

The two days planned will include opportunities for young people to shape the focus for the impact days, determine which projects they wish to speak about as well as appoint a team of 12 young people to act as

  • 3x Directors
  • 3 x Camera operators
  • 3x Sound engineers
  • 3x Lighting specialists

Thursday will be an introductory evening to set how the big day on Saturday will take place. We will also be joined by a selection of our stakeholders who will be on hand to acknowledge contributions of young people and to hand out a number of awards to outstanding young people. We will be joined by our new meals supplier Big Deezs who will be cooking up a feast to ensure our young people and guest are watered, feed and inspired.

The creative assets from these days will be used to launch Voyage new website, support social media campaigns and inform impact reports for our amazing donors, investors and supporters.

We look forward to undertaking this inspirational day with our young and working alongside creative professionals to make Impact.

Voyage is proud to be a delivery partner of R4NR which is an exciting new programme designed to kick start employment for young people from black communities in the environmental and conservation sector.

Voyage will be offering a bespoke mentoring service to the young people recruited by over 40 conservation charities and voluntary sector organisations. The mentoring will be lead by Duane Maddison supported by Shakara Mbandaka, Maxine Stephens and Neils Fossberry.

We will be working closely with Action for Conservation, Generation Success and SOS UK.

What is Race For Nature’s Recovery 

Race for Nature’s Recovery is a new employment initiative that’s pioneered by a group of environmental organisations and diversity recruitment champions. Our objective is to diversify the environmental sector and support the creation of new, fulfilling jobs for 16-24 years from predominantly BAME and other underrepresented backgrounds in UK environmental charities and organisations. 

We will also be supporting the host organisations to build their own capacity so they can better support these voices in their work. 

What are we trying to achieve with this initiative? 

We already have 35 organisations signed up to take part in the initial phase of this employment programme and together we’ve so far helped create 118 jobs that young people will be starting from this month onwards. That’s a great start and will enable us to begin making the cultural and organisational changes needed to improve diversity and create a more inclusive workforce in the UK’s environmental sector.

What are the challenges

we are driven by the harrowing stats around the initiative. e.g.

  • 118 young people will be supported into roles during the scheme over the coming months
  • We’re aiming to place 150 young people during 2021
  • 35 UK charities and organisations have already signed up and we hope to welcome others to the programme over the next year
  • RSPB, Friends of the Earth, ClientEarth, and ZSL London Zoo are just a few of the organisations already signed up to offer roles
  • We intend for over 50% of these placements to turn into full-time roles
  • Every role pays the Real Living Wage or above

Key stats about the industry

  • The environmental sector has the second least diverse workforce of all UK sectors
  • Only 3.1% of professionals working in the environmental sector identify as minorities, compared to 19.9% of all occupations identify as minorities
