At Voyage we are always striving to stay in touch with our young people no mater what the circumstances are. In these very challenging times we know many of our young people are house bound and could be suffering from boredom, anxiety and maybe down or depressed as a loved one is at risk.

In what ever circumstance you may find yourself in don’t forget to check in with those close to you and let them know how you are and what help you might need. The key thing is to communicate.

We at Voyage want to let you know we are here for you and we want to know how best we can continue to offer support to you at this challenging times. If you a have a minute please complete the attached survey so we can target our efforts to your needs. Please click on the link here for more.

Meantime stay, safe, stay warm and of course stay home.

We are excited to be hosting our Graduation at Westminister cathedral on Saturday the 20th July 2019.

We will be celebrating with over 270 people made up of friends, families and the scores of young people that have completed Voyages Young leaders for Safer Cities Programme which started in March this year. We host our graduation each year to acknowledge the commitment of young people attending well over 150 hours of structured learning on a saturday morning. All young people that have completed our programme are amazing as they will have developed a solution focused project idea that was produced by them and presented to their peers. Our programme helps to sow powerful seeds of leadership, campaigning and community organising whilst bringing young people across divided neighbourhoods together.

We are looking forward to hosting our young people and their families and sharing their achievements with our specially invited guests.

Our host is the inspirational Yinka Ayinde (aka PureYinkz) an Award-winning creative-producer who has vast experience in theatre, music and live events who will be the master of ceremony.

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.
