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:
