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. Yinka will be leading and introducing an amazing cast of people supporting us on the evening. Our special guests confirmed are:

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.

We are proud to announce our second cohort of young leaders were successfully inducted to our Leadership programme through a weekend residential to Grosvenor Hall, Kingwood in Kent, to start our YLFSC course on the 21st April at Hackney College. Our weekend residential provided an excellent setting and a challenging and vibrant leadership programme  helping our young people to bond and form lasting friendships with their peers from different parts of London.

Our team of young people showed amazing leadership skills, huge confidence and we have discovered lots of bright and talented young people amongst the group. Its worth noting over 50% of our recruited young people come from the London Borough of Hackney and its great to see positive examples of young people helping each other to become leaders in their communities. We are proud to announce the weekend went without any problems or complaints and we can only commend the efforts of our young people, tutors and an amazing team of 6 of our graduates acting as youth volunteers over the weekend.

We wish to thank Hackneys “Asorock” for supplying some great food over the weekend, Kingswood Campus, our amazing tutors, Volunteers and Janet Hills (Chair of the Black Police Association) all of whom helped our young leaders to realise their potential by encouraging them to take bigger challenges over the weekend. Young people were keen to express their concerns about the state of fear in their communities but felt there needs to be a new and perhaps a more private mechanism to report crime. Janet kindly agreed to take this back into her discussions with senior Police officials and the Mayor.

We look forward to seeing our young leaders on the Hackney College Campus on Saturday 21st April 2018 at 9am.
